Summary

This integrated resource package, sponsored by the Agriculture in the Classroom Foundation, has been prepared for, and by, teachers of primary children. It provides twenty activities for a theme study of seeds, extending the material into all areas of the curriculum.

 

Comment

The activities provide starting points for children and teachers; they can be studied independently or by groups of students, and in any sequence. Teachers could plan a unit for the spring or fall, or choose seasonal activities to use throughout the year. Beans and Their Buddies is well suited for a centres approach in a child-centred environment. Excellent reproducible pages included.
