SCIENCE AND GARDENING

Studies have shown that children who participated in gardening projects scored higher in science achievement than those who did not. Growing a vegetable garden provides many opportunities for scientific inquiry. With a gardening project, children learn to observe and investigate. Harvesting their own vegetables and learning how and where food comes from may also help in forming healthy eating habits.

Toka Explorer Activity

Grow Your Own Vegetables

Growing a vegetable garden can provide a rich environment for science activities - tracking the lifecycle of the plant from seed to fruit, observing and recording the stages of your plant in your tracker, discussing the parts of the plant that we eat - we eat the roots in radishes, the seeds of the sunflower and of course, the peas which are also seeds. Don’t forget to have discussions beyond the box on photosynthesis, pollination and of course, decomposition. Combine math with your garden project, count the plants, the leaves,the fruit and weigh the harvest!
