Cycles in the Garden is a hands-on unit of study which builds scientific habits of mind and celebrates the cycles found in a garden community. The les-sons integrate math, science, literacy, and social studies while students practice stewardship skills in a classroom Grow Lab and school yard garden habitat. Through experiments, ongoing observation, tasting, and planting, students develop an understanding of, appreciation for, and curiosity about the processes and cycles involved in the plants and animals making their home in the soil right outside their door.
