Fall gardening is a great opportunity for students. By choosing fast growing plants, student can grow, record and harvest plants. Not to mention its a great excuse to get outside. Each week we have students record the plant height, condition, weather and any other interesting notes. This year we grew radish and spinach the first months of school. Kids loved trying out some new veggies. In addition this provides a great data collection lesson for the scientific method. Don't worry if you didn't try it this fall, these same plant also grow well in the spring. Looking for a fun way to log data? Have kids create a slide show, one slide per day, include a picture with a ruler for scale.
