Garden To Table has new lesson plans for spring and fall for K-5th grades. Working collaboratively with teachers the Growe Foundation has provided us the opportunity to track strong curriculum based connections to the school gardens. Math skills were practiced as 1st grade students planted lettuce transplants. Science skills, social studies and health standards are tapped as the garden is harvested and planted again. New lesson plans will 'plant the seeds' of creativity and encourage teachers and classrooms to discover additional ways to connect learning opportunities to their school gardens.
