Children need to experience nature, and gardening is a good way to encourage them to engage with the earth, plants and animals. Gardening classes, as taught in Steiner-Waldorf schools from Class 6 to Class 10, help children develop many important skills, including sensory perception and motor skills, as well as an understanding of ecology and agriculture. How can such a complex subject be taught well and effectively? In a clear structure -- which includes the history of school gardens, aspects of child development, and practical help on teaching methods, lesson planning for different age groups, and maintaining the garden itself - Birte Kaufmann offers many useful tips and suggestions for new or developing gardening teachers.
