My Secret Garden

I was so happy today to finally see some spring flowers poking up in Massachusetts.  Were you? Check out My Secret Garden, an activity for younger or developmentally younger students in which you can choose a number of garden elements and watch them grow!  I used this as a cooperative activity with three 1st and 2nd grade students today and they were more than happy to take turns and make suggestions to each other, then asked for the link so they could use it at home!

Language Lens:
  • Just a few of the concepts and categories targeted contextually in My Secret Garden: animals, seasons, color, right/left, short/tall, front/back, before/after, near/ well as comparing and contrasting the different kinds of gardens the site allows you to make. Have kids describe or write about their garden after it is created!
