What is each person's responsibility for environmental stewardship?
NOTE: Prior to this lesson, use the Blue Sky Activity in which students envision a better world. If you already have a Blue Sky display, revisit it before beginning this lesson.
Through the use of literature, students will see that a garden is a place where an individual can go for inner peace and solitude. They will learn environmental responsibility by sharing a garden within a community.
One 45 Minute Class Period
The learner will:
Ask students to raise their hands if they have a garden or have worked in a garden. Ask the students who raise their hands to describe some of the work involved.
Teacher observation of learner's participation in class discussions will serve as the assessment.
