Educational Resources during COVID-19

We are pleased to be able to share some of our Garden to Table gardening, cooking and education resources to support families during this lockdown period. You can view recent posts and categories on the right of the screen. All across NZ funding bodies are closing to new applications, corporates are putting a hold on their donations, and generous, individual donors have become our lifeline. Garden to Table doesn't receive any government funding, although our work, building resilience and life-skills in children, has never been more important. We are making our resources freely available, but would be grateful for any donation you are able to provide to help us continue our work with over 16,000 primary school children each week. The Donate button is at the top of the screen. Stay well and kia kaha.

COOL AS A CUCUMBER, HOT AS A CHILLI – MINDFULNESS


Wednesday, May 13, 2020   |   Linda Taylor

The transition back to school may be difficult for some of our children, and the garden at school and at home can be used for much more than just growing and harvesting vegetables. It is a great space for chilling, calming down, practicing mindfulness and taking a break. 

This resource is developed primarily for teachers and, importantly, other school staff, to offer some tools and ideas for using the garden space as a place to benefit students in small groups or 1:1.  However these ideas may also be helpful for children who are anxious about going back to school.

Rainy Day Activities


Tuesday, April 07, 2020   |   Linda Taylor

Rainy days are tough for everyone, especially when the children are itching to get outside and the adults probably are too. Rainy day activities are ideally as practical and hands-on as possible.  Here are some ideas we use at Garden to Table when we can't get out in the garden.  Please click on the link below.

Dig for Victory Education Unit


Monday, April 06, 2020   |   Linda Taylor

Tying in with Anzac Day celebrations and remembrance, this unit explores how vegetables influenced New Zealand’s war effort and why. Using photos and other historical documents, students will explore what happened at home during World War Two and consider how that might have impacted on their lives if it was today. Finally, students will plan and plant a Victory Garden of their own using a recycled container and look at how changing behaviour and making individual sacrifices impacts on the greater good.  Please click on the links below to work your way through the unit.

The transition back to school may be difficult for some of our children, and the garden at school and at home can be used for much more than just\n growing and harvesting vegetables. It is a great space for chilling, calming down, practicing mindfulness and taking a break. 

\n

\n

This resource is developed primarily for teachers and, importantly, other school staff, to offer some tools and ideas for using the garden space as\n a place to benefit students in small groups or 1:1.  However these ideas may also be helpful for children who are anxious about going back\n to school. 

Please read through the resources below, developed and curated by our Curriculum Development Manager Victoria, to help your\n child feel as cool as a cucumber, even if they start off as hot as a chilli!

\n

This is only a part of the full, curriculum-linked resource, which is available to teachers on our Garden to Table Membership pages and also via our google\n classroom.  If you are a teacher and would like to know more about the full resource, which includes links to the Health and Physical Education\n learning area, and Key Competencies, please contact us at info@gardentotable.org.nz.

\n

\n

These ideas are not new, and a quick internet search will provide many more ideas and graphics that will help, but we have gathered, collated and modified\n the material to help you use your school gardens as a place of calm.

Rainy days are tough for everyone, especially when the children are itching to get outside and the adults probably are too. Rainy day activities are ideally\n as practical and hands-on as possible.  Here are some ideas we use at Garden to Table when we can't get out in the garden.  Please click\n on the link below.

Tying in with Anzac Day celebrations and remembrance, this unit explores how vegetables influenced New Zealand’s war effort and why. Using photos and other\n historical documents, students will explore what happened at home during World War Two and consider how that might have impacted on their lives\n if it was today. Finally, students will plan and plant a Victory Garden of their own using a recycled container and look at how changing behaviour\n and making individual sacrifices impacts on the greater good.  Please click on the links below to work your way through the unit.
