The First Grade Curriculum can be purchase in a bundle with the First Grade Journal here
This is a 6-week curriculum to use with the Tower Garden by Juice Plus. Don't purchase this curriculum if you do not already have a Tower Garden to use in your classroom. (Visit www.tgardener.com for more information.) Although it could be adapted for other states, this curriculum is based on the Indiana Academic Standards. Follow me to find out when other grade levels and states come online.
The curriculum helps you take students through a 6-week growing cycle. It uses every aspect of the Tower Garden experience from building the Tower Garden and planting seeds through maintaining the Tower Garden and finishes with a harvest party on week 6. Indiana Academic Standards in math, English, and science are clearly labeled with each activity.
Instructions for building and maintaining the Tower Garden are included in the curriculum as well as suggested lettuces to grow.
Permission is granted for one license purchased to cover a first grade teaching team in one school. For example: If your school has 3 first grade classrooms that either share a Tower Garden or have multiple Tower Gardens, copies can be made for all the teachers. Multiple schools in a district must purchase a separate license.
