Additional Information:

Prior to beginning this unit with your child you may wish to purchase marigold, bean or other easy to grow seeds for planting. You may also wish to visit a local garden store to purchase some small planter size starter plants so your child has the opportunity to experience caring for a plant and watching it grow and change over the duration of the unit. I recommend using this unit in the spring as it will enable you to complete activities with greater ease.
