Looking for a way to bring nature into the schoolyard? Consider having an environmental learning site, in the form of a school garden, just outside your classroom door.
Students need to learn that the environment is not something you go on a school bus to see, but something that is everywhere we are. School gardens provide learning opportunities across the curriculum, not to mention a unique opportunity to engage children who may not have other opportunities to work in the soil.
