Have you always wanted to garden with your students but felt that you lacked the resources and know-how to effectively integrate a school across your classroom curricula?
Montessori educators know the positive impact that experiencing nature, learning to be good stewards of our Earth, and maintaining a school garden can have on our students.
Whether a single flower pot or a full farm, a lack of gardening know-how and feelings of overwhelm can stop us in our tracks.
This course provides specific guidance on how to successfully garden with children, lesson plans for the garden that align with existing Montessori elementary lessons, and the health and academic benefits of gardening with children.
A certificate of completion for 4 hours is provided.
