Learning objects How does your garden grow?

TLF ID M021799

This Stage 2 resource grew from a conversation between young students questioning why they could still buy grapes if they were out of season. This wondering led to a discussion around when we grow certain fruit and vegetables. The original stimulus was extended to cover planting for the seasons and factors that influence healthy plant growth. At the end of their learning, students will have the understanding that the seasons, as well as a number of other factors (sunlight and soil temperature, pH level and type), influence what, when and where we plant our fruit and vegetables.
