Reading Adventure Pack: Gardening

A Reading Adventure Pack invites scholars to start gardening. Following a reading of two books—fiction and nonfiction—young green thumbs repurpose food containers to grow an herb garden in their kitchen, plant seeds in starter pots out of toilet paper roll tubes, and draw an aerial view of a garden's layout.
