Tower Garden Curriculum for School Classrooms
We’ve developed a curriculum that matches many state academic standards in English, math, and science. Each curriculum goes through a 6-week growing cycle taking students from building the Tower Garden to planting seeds through to a salad party. The curriculum covers more than science. Various parts of the Tower Garden and procedures to care for the plants are used to cover math and English standards.
