Permaculture expert and educator Ross Mars is back with another collection of hands-on projects and investigations that provide students with opportunities to observe, understand and contribute to a thriving garden ecosystem.

You learned the basics of garden design and maintenance through the first book in this series, Life in a garden. Now you can take that knowledge even further with Science in a garden: Activities and projects for the outdoor classroom, Years F–6. Students will follow the journey from theory to final product through the book’s six parts: understanding science in the garden, growth in the garden, changes in the garden, animals in the garden, human use of the garden and products from the garden.

Each activity is aligned to the Australian Curriculum: Science and the Australian Curriculum: Technologies as well as the cross-curriculum priority of sustainability. Plus, teachers can use the handy index of curriculum links to assist with their planning.

You will love watching your students deepen their understanding of the outdoor environment and apply their knowledge in real-world scenarios.

Science in a garden is a positive elixir, a go-to reference book for teachers and students to find instruction that inspires investigation and understanding of the world around us. . . . Clear, articulate and really well-illustrated by the talented Brenna Quinlan and Simone Willis, this book informs teachers and parents in such a way that they can easily support and provoke students to thrive and strive. What’s more, by being linked to the Australian Curriculum, it ties the outcomes of the activities to students and their progress through the required stages of learning.
