A grow your own topic - A topic has been written for parents who home school and teachers who would like a fun topic that offers opportunities for children and pupils to choose what fruit and vegetables they would like to grow in their home garden or school garden. Through research choose the vegetables they would like to eat later in the year. Parents and teachers can use the websites listed to help in their ’ grow your own ’ topic and through this, offers many opportunities to spend time outdoors preparing an area of the garden for growing crops. My two and half year old enjoyed placing the pea seeds in the seed trays indoors ready in a few weeks to plant the seedlings outdoors. All children will enjoy being involved in the sewing of the seeds, to eventually harvesting the crops to enjoy and eat. Additional activities for older children allows further research to be carried out online: To transfer the data collected onto maps produce posters on what is needed to be successful at growing vegetables or fruits, thinking about what tools are needed and the time of year the seeds will be planted. A storyboard/ time board activity to draw the process of preparing the veg patch, planting the seeds indoors, watering, planting out the seedlings outside to how long it takes the vegetables to grow. (Those children who love drawing can draw further detailed drawings of the vegetables) Enjoy and have fun spending time outdoors in this topic.
