Science in the GardenA 2002 British study reported that eight-year-olds could identify "Pokemon" characters with more success than they could name an otter, a beetle, and an oak tree. Gardens provide opportunities for kids to explore and learn about the natural world - at a time when they are increasingly separated from it. Invite your students to be soil detectives, plant observers and insect identifyers! Plant gardens that welcome wildlife and enhance the biodiversity of your space. Get out those nature journals and magnifying glasses!
