Science Lessons and Books About Seeds
As a homeschooling and homesteading family, we spend a lot of time together learning self-reliance skills. Sometimes we're caring for our animals, such as our turkey chicks, laying hens, and meat chickens.
As our family works to secure our food supply and become more self-reliant, our indoor and outdoor garden activities grow.
Gardening with kids offers so many opportunities to include a variety of homeschool subjects - especially science.
We look for the easiest vegetables to grow for kids, then give them the responsibility of minding that crop. And yes, we do buy organic and heirloom seeds, we also save our tomato seeds, pepper seeds, and seed potatoes for next year's crops.
