Specially created by teachers for teachers, the KidsGrow's hands-on gardening resources projects are directly linked to the national curriculum exposing students to a range of thinking skills and learning styles. With KidsGrow, students learn as they are design, plant and nurture their gardens.
Kidsgrow sustainable gardening principles - School gardens cultivate not only plants and animals, but also the academic, personal and interpersonal skills of the students who tend them.
The KidsGrow themed gardens plant ideas for teaching and learning and encourage kids to engage in gardening that is purposeful, smart, connected and fun.
Kidsgrow themed gardens -KidsGrow themed gardens offer authentic contexts for deep learning. Not only are learning outcomes achieved in the traditional areas of knowledge, skills, attitudes and values, but also in terms of activity, problem solving, progressive behaviour, creativity, enjoyment and inspiration.
Resources for schools - School gardens cultivate not only plants and animals but also the academic, personal and interpersonal skills of the students who tend them. The KidsGrow resources for schools encourage kids to learn while having fun in the garden. The important resources for schools include an overview of the learning outcomes for each of the four themed gardens, how they link to the Australian Sustainable Schools initIative and practical tips for gardening at school. The colourful A3 poster, KidsGrow garden links to learning, illustrates how KidsGrow gardening activities link to the school curriculum and encourage interdisciplinary learning.
