Gardening in the Classroom

Here are a few ideas for starting a small garden in the classroom.  Students enjoy watching their seeds grow, and there are several options available for just how to do it.

  • Intellokids has a wide range of seed-plating methods for the classroom.  This contains descriptions of planting seeds in jars, in fish tanks and on paper towels, among other places.
  • This is actually a craft project that describes using recycled materials to create a "garden" of flowers and other plants.  This is a good activity for Earth Day or any lesson about recycling or reusing materials, perfect for spring. 
  • This idea comes from Family Fun magazine, a good way to save space by using a window for your seeds:
