Project Learning Garden Program Curriculum
The Captain Planet’s Project Learning Garden Program encourages educators to consider the school garden as an extension of the traditional classroom rather than an extracurricular activity. All Learning Garden lessons are tied to common core curriculum standards, encourage inquiry-based learning, provide hands-on experiential learning, and guide the teacher towards the next generation science standards. Each lesson also provides an environmental stewardship learning opportunity.
The lessons provides an occasion for learning across multiple subjects including: math, science, health, social studies and language arts. This integrative approach breaks down existing boundaries between disciplines and provides an opportunity for students to apply critical thinking skills in a real world situation.
*Please have your class fill out the pre- and post-test for the Project Learning Garden Program. You can find them at the beginning of each lesson. Under each lesson there is a teacher evaluation online survey. Please take a few minutes to share your thoughts and ideas about the lesson you taught.
