Writing in the Garden
It's easy to link writing with the school garden! All types of writing are possible: fantasy stories, poetry, personal or scientific journals, school garden newsletters, informative pieces on how to garden, persuasive pieces on why you should garden, and letters requesting donations. Your students will be learning something new every time they visit the garden. Give them the opportunity to share their knowledge through writing.

What Happens in the Garden When Nobody's There?
A school garden can be the spark for so many kinds of writing -- so why not fantasy writing? Our favorite garden-fantasy writing prompt is “What happens in the garden when nobody’s there?” Much like Anne Bowen and Barry Gott’s book What Do Teachers Do (After You Leave School), this assignment encourages children of all ages to let their imaginations soar as they consider what could happen in a garden when no people are present.
