Kids in the Garden; Learning and Growing
Here at The Educators’ Spin On It we feel that gardening provides educational and social opportunities for our children to grow up with. We believe in the power of a garden and connect reading, writing, math, science, social studies, and play into our gardening activities.
We provide opportunities for our children to learn and experience the world in their own back yard.
Gardening can be as simple as sowing a seed in a pot or as large as homesteading. We fall somewhere in the middle!!!
