The Rutabaga Education Curriculum is a series of Garden-based Science, Nature, and Nutrition lesson plans for elementary school-aged children.
First and Second Grade - Spring Season contains ten lessons (46 pages) that focus on the relationships between animals and plants in the garden. Activities are then geared to introduce children to a variety of seasonally appropriate plants that reinforce the idea of interdependence.
Buy this single book of 10 seasonal lessons for $60 (or buy the COMPLETE - 3 Book First and Second series for Fall, Winter, and Spring for $150.00).
Comes in a sturdy spiral-bound format printed on 14pt extra thick semi-gloss card stock for durability outdoors (Covers are 16pt).
They are designed to allow teachers AND parents the opportunity to incorporate garden-based science, nature, and nutrition into their educational curriculum through accessible lesson plans.
Parent/grandparent volunteers have used these lesson plans, and they have been tried, tested, and refined in the elementary school environment for the last five years.
