Eight engaging lessons can be utilized by teachers or volunteers working in schools to enrich student’s conceptual understanding in the area of plant and soils.
Strawberries in Schools
Growing a strawberry garden at your school provides students with a hands-on space to explore the life cycle of a plant and an understanding of cultivating food. Explore ideas on how to grow strawberries in an annual production system and browse a few lessons by expert teachers for possibilities of what to learn from the garden.
Busy World of Bees
This curriculum is crafted to engage youth in celebrating bees and their pollinator allies and build an understanding of the benefits that bees and other pollinators provide to humans, as well as the fact that all bees need our help to do their work. Youth will also explore the diversity and differences within habitats and garner further understanding of what honey bees, native bees and other pollinators need to grow and thrive.
Every spring and summer, youth and adults alike enjoy sweet-smelling flowers and listening to the buzzing sound that comes from the rapidly beating wings of busy bees. Through a series of seven lessons and multiple experiential activities, youth will learn how critical bees are to our agricultural industry and native ecosystems.
Follow the wondrous transformation of the caterpillar of a painted lady butterfly into a chrysalis to the emergence of a fancy, flighted adult butterfly! Winged Wonders is a hands-on exploration of animal life cycles through the lens of raising live butterflies. Youth explore the parts of an insect, habitat, life cycle and grow an appreciation and understanding of the role of insects as part of our ecosystems.
Soil to Seed

The curriculum has been designed to weave together environmental education objectives with interactive lessons on soil erosion that utilize the surrounding school campus as a situated learning environment.
