National Ag in the Classroom: A Garden Plot

Students will identify foods grown in a garden, observe various types of seed, and grow their own “milk jug” garden. Students will hear “The Tale of Peter Rabbit” by Beatrix Potter and learn about produce that is grown in gardens or on farms. Students will conduct a “Rabbit Taste Test” where they give different kinds of rabbit food (lettuce, carrots, beets, radishes) to try. They will record Rabbit Taste Test results on graphs. Students will discuss why rabbits are mammals and the characteristics of all mammals.
