With red buds popping, this season can be a great time to arouse students’ curiosity about garden miracles, and Think Garden — one of PBS LearningMedia’s great new content collections — has just the video resources you’ll need! This engaging video collection produced by KET (Kentucky Educational Television) helps teach elementary students about the art and science of growing food, with an emphasis on biological and environmental concepts. It also addresses topics related to nutrition and economics.
One of the videos, Think Garden: Cool Crops explores the possibilities of gardening in the cooler temperatures of spring and fall. Students learn about which vegetables like cool weather and what techniques help plants, like raised beds and hoop houses, grow in these conditions. They’ll also find out why cool crops are ideal for school gardens.
