Here in the DC this winter’s record snowfall that blanketed the region is a distant memory as signs of spring appear everywhere. Our family spent all daylight hours of the weekend outside enjoying the sunshine and doing hands on science to prepare our garden for planting season.
As we dug in the dirt, I thought of the emphasis on science, technology, engineering, and math (otherwise known as STEM topics) and about the ways math and science can be integrated into planting a garden. Whether you are a container gardener, enjoy having beautiful flowers line your beds, or are planning a bountiful harvest from your family’s vegetable garden, hop on over to The LeapFrog Community to read my most recent post called Integrating Science and Math into Your Spring Garden for ways you can include hands-on math and science into your gardening for kids of all ages.
For other great STEM ideas, visit AAUW’s (formerly known as the American Association of University Women) site for resources for parents, teachers, and kids.
