"On-line interactive plant science curriculum for grades 4 and 5, from Chicago Urban Gardening, University of Illinois. Great educational site, fun and adventure while uncovering the world of plants. Parallel resources for teachers to guide the lessons as they unfold. Each of the lessons is interdisciplinary, designed to introduce students to plant science and increase their understanding of how foods grow. Includes math, science, language arts, social studies, music and art. Students can work independently or in groups. "How Did Your Lettuce Grow? That's great. Your lettuce is healthy. Now we can go on and make a tossed salad." Clever, well-implemented. See also The Adventures of Squirmin' Herman the Worm, Composting for schools."
