We have identified a very resourceful web site full of great ideas for gardening projects.  The site is called the SCHOOL GARDEN POTPOURRI OF IDEAS and includes suggestions for growing various types of plants, adopting a plant and keeping a journal on it, researching your state garden products, making a root view box, collecting soil from different spots, and many other interesting ideas.  The ideas were compiled by Amanda Vanhoozier, Gardeners in Community Development. 


Science 4 Kids! science projects
Science 4 Kids!

Here is an exciting source of great science project suggestions and helpful knowledge from the Agricultural Research Service (ARS).  ARS Science 4 Kids! presents information about science projects, agricultural careers, resources for teachers including clever quizzes, and even a Spanish language version of all content.  An explanation of what a science project is supposed to accomplish precedes a list of ideas grouped into chemistry, botany, environmental sciences, health, microbiology and zoology.  Lots of graphics and animation like those above and below, make this a fun-learning experience.


Welcome to Mr. McGregor's Garden!

Join us for the adventures, or misadventures of Beatrix Potter's, Peter Rabbit. We will visit Mr. McGregor's garden and do some neat gardening activities, meet Mrs. McGregor and many of the characters in the stories, get involved with science activities and experiments, and create incredible art projects.

Did you know Beatrix Potter was a scientist? She was one of the most important researchers of her time! Ms. Potter, as we know from her books, was a wonderful artist. She incorporated her art into her scientific studies, too! What do you think might have been her special area in science? Try to find out! (Hint: It was something to do with things that grow in or on the ground area. )

The WWW Virtual Library:
Science Fairs

This Library page, from the USC collection, is an attempt to provide a single comprehensive list of every science fair accessible through the World Wide Web, whether of global or local scope.  This document is part of the World-Wide Web Virtual Library. Information is categorized by subject.  Many of us are familiar with science fairs organized by our own schools or local communities, but are not aware of the many science fairs designed to invite participation from students in many locations, states and countries.

The Science Garden Project

The Science Garden project involves designing a science garden to allow all students through their science curriculum and a Gardening Club to plant seeds, shrubs, trees etc. After having done the planting, then to be able to observe the growth of these plants, as well as the identification of them. Also to be able to see what insects and birds are attracted to the garden.

In addition to being able to observe what is happening, the children will be able to keep records of these and report them by using the technology base that is available to them in the Learning Resource Center and their classrooms.

Check out Plants and Animals on the Living Things

In a very colorful and interesting way the world of plants and animals is described on the Living Things web site by the Franklin Institute Online.  Subjects include the structure of cells, the families and taxonomy of living things, ecosystems and habitats, and the life cycle.  Curriculum guides for teachers are also included at various grade levels.  A forum for educators and a kid-board for children provide useful communication links for participants.
