Learning with Lettuce
Tower Garden® Curriculum that Matches Academic Standards
2nd Grade Overview
This curriculum will help you take your 2nd graders through a 6-week, Tower Garden growing cycle. Although a wide variety of crops can be grown indoors and outdoors on a Tower Garden, the following lettuces grow well inside, provide different shapes and textures for kids, and should be ready to harvest in six weeks: arugula, red salad bowl, buttercrunch, black seeded simpson, and pak choi.
The lessons can be accomplished in about one hour per week.
