    • Advice:
      “Just do it! Don’t wait for all conditions to be perfect—just start and go with what you have. It may take years for the ‘vision’ to take its final form. Don’t let your own limitations determine whether or not you should start a school garden. The students play a huge role and you have to just go with it”

These varied publications, many already widely used and field-tested by teachers statewide, feature effective garden-based learning strategies. Download a PDF order form to purchase a hard copy or download a PDF version for free at the CDE's download page.. “WE Garden” Lesson Plans – California Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom (CFAITC), along with other garden-based learning organizations, developed this series of 10 garden-based lesson plans in May 2009 as the educational component of First Lady Maria Shriver’s “WE Garden in Capitol Park.” Educators can use the lessons to transition the hands-on, real world experiences learned in a garden, into in a traditional classroom setting. Activities are based on overarching garden themes, such as Nourishing and Nurturing Soil with Compost, Following Food from Farm to Fork, Tasting and Testing the Harvest, and Observing and Identifying Garden Pests. Adaptable for students of all ages, the “WE Garden” lesson plans meet multiple CA State Board of Education Content Standards for first through sixth grades. Lesson plans are available for download at www.cfaitc.org/wegarden.Plant a Seed, Watch it GrowWeb based guide to starting, caring for, and teaching in a school garden created by the Master Gardener Association of San Diego.

      Chicago Wilderness
      Educational resources and information on how to become involved in
      local biodiversity conservation in the Chicagoland area.
      Economics of Biodiversity
      If you are interested in the topic of biodiversity as it relates to world
      trade issues, this site is for you. The mission of this site is “to influence,
      encourage, and assist societies throughout the world to conserve the
      integrity and diversity of nature and to ensure that any use of natural
      resources is equitable and ecologically sustainable”. Great for making
      connections to economics.
      Planet Pals
      Classroom projects from around the world reflect what some students
      are working on to help our universe. You can contribute to Planet Pals
      by sending a link to your own classroom projects.
      Value of Biodiversity
      A world map defining areas of high concern for conservation leads to a
      discussion of biodiversity in economic terms. Measurement of biodiversity
      values are needed to determine the 'where' of in situ conservation
      action rather than the 'how', particularly in deciding which combinations
      of available areas could represent and help sustain the most biodiversity
      value for the future. This raises questions such as What is biodiversity?
      What is the value basis for measuring it? What practical approaches are
      available for measuring this biodiversity value?
      Fibonacci Numbers and the Golden Rules
      A fascinating study of one of nature’s golden rules – patterns repeat
      themselves (albeit not without exception). Activities will challenge
      students and teachers to contemplate everyday items and encounters
      through a lens of math and art. An excellent classroom resource.
