A Child's Garden of Standards: Linking School Gardens to California Education Standards.
Submitted by jfisher on Tue, 01/18/2011 - 1:56pm
The main purpose of A Child’s Garden of Standards is to demonstrate that garden-based education (GBE) strongly supports and enhances California’s academic content standards. Most of the suggested activities in this guide come from 11 GBE instructional materials. The tables for grades two through six are the heart of the document. They provide an easy way for educators to identify grade-appropriate, garden-based activities in each core subject area and help educators focus their programs on one or more of the seed-to-table content areas: gardening, nutrition, cooking, waste management, and agricultural systems.
