Ashbrook, Peggy
Science and Children, v51 n1 p30-31 Sep 2013
Children may not be aware of the origin of much of their food, especially if they eat mostly processed foods. Schools that operate a garden are able to teach children how common foods are parts of plants. This column discusses resources and science topics related to students in grades preK to 2. In this month's issue students focus on possible evidence of animals using plants for food or shelter.
