Making Connections Lesson Plan and Teaching Resources for City Green

City Green offers a unique opportunity for all students to connect with a world unlike their own. Students with planting and gardening experience will make text-to-self connections as they reflect on the anticipation of waiting for life to grow. Text-to-world connections will also be made as they learn more about living in an urban city center. Children who live in apartments or other areas where gardening is less commonplace can connect the story to their own neighborhood landscapes and what it might be like to have a garden of their own.
