The Rutabaga Education Curriculum is a series of Garden-based Science, Nature, and Nutrition lesson plans for elementary school-aged children.
The complete three-book series, totaling 30 lessons, for Pre-K and Kindergarten includes Fall, Winter, and Spring.
The lessons are designed to build upon themselves from week to week within a season and from season to season (ideally, fall through spring).
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 use these lesson plans that have been tried, tested, and refined in the elementary school environment for the last five years.
