After Christmas, checking out these lesson planning resources

Try the Green Thumb Challenge for ideas that might work for you.Where can you find resources on a variety of greening topics for school use in one place? The Green Education Foundation has several green challenges with lessons and activities to support the objectives. I didn’t do much with Earth Week last year, and hope to remedy it this year. We’ll look into the Green Thumb Challenge. Other topic choices include sustainable water, bike riding instead of cars, green energy and waste reduction.

Great film resource for gardening class

I usually use youtube to help teach concepts in my gardening elective, but the videos sometimes are not so polished. They also are very skill oriented, which of course is what I’m teaching. But this website had films that really tell more the story of growing food from the viewpoint of the contest’s videographers. The results are some outstanding films. Check it out.
