Schoolyard Mosaics
E-mail Print

In the past 10 years, there's been a surge of interest among educators and administrators nationwide in using schoolyard gardens and habitats to enrich learning. Although enthusiasm is high, many busy teachers are at loose ends when it comes to planning an outdoor classroom. NGA created Schoolyard Mosaics in collaboration with educators featured in our school garden registry who have engaged students in transforming schoolyards into wildlife habitats, square-foot gardens, multipurpose outdoor classrooms, and a variety of theme gardens. The book offers advice on involving students in the planning and design process, building community support, and integrating the project with your curriculum and learning goals.
