The Rutabaga Education Curriculum is a series of Garden-based Science, Nature, and Nutrition lesson plans for elementary school-aged children.
Third and Fourth Grade - Winter Season contains ten lessons and two options for an end of season assessment (54 pages). Topics explore Plant Classification, and the inherited similarities plants have within families. Children examine common and seasonal plant families found in an edible garden to allow them to recognize various plant species, identify their nutritional needs and benefits, and determine crop interdependence.
Buy this single book of 10 seasonal lessons for $50 (or buy the COMPLETE 3-Book Third and Fourth grade series for Fall, Winter and Spring for $125).
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 lessons, and they have been tried, tested, and refined in the elementary school environment for the last five years.
