Gardening Teaches More Than How to Grow Food!

It's planting time! Look at these six children working cooperatively together to get the work done. 

They have to decide about pulling weeds, raking, what is ready to be picked and taking turns.
Look at them talking to one another, they may find something interesting in the dirt that would provide a teachable moment for the teacher. They are drawing conclusions, expanding their language and doing so much more than just growing food.
