The lessons in this issue introduce students to gardening and plants. Students learn the history of gardening and the difference between a formal and natural garden.
The activities ask students to study the six basic plant parts and to identify them while observing plants on a class visit to a garden. They then grow their own plant in individual pots and put on their own classroom garden show. An activity sheet with a matching game is provided.
