The purpose of gardening within an educational setting is to utilize the garden as an educational tool. The garden and skills developed by gardening provide concrete examples of theoretical or abstract concepts or processes. This is critical for some students and will result in both greater understanding of difficult concepts and application of those concepts across diverse topics. Before one can garden well, a great deal of science needs to be understood and applied. The understanding of photosynthesis is the first of those concepts. This lesson is designed to make this relatively abstract process concrete for students and, in particular, young students.
