King County Master Gardener Teaching Kits are classrooms in a box. Each kit focuses on a specific subject with curricula easily adjusted to any age group, from preschoolers to seniors. These Teaching Kits are designed to bring FREE garden-related environmental education to schools, community groups, youth programs, and senior centers. Depending on scheduling, a Master Gardener may be available to make a presentation using the kits.
Some of the special, theme-related items you will find in each of these well-designed teaching kits are included in the descriptions below. Each kit also includes a multitude of supplies such as posters, books, DVDs, hand lenses, Petri dishes, recorded songs with lyrics, hands-on props for the activities, and numerous reference resources. The 3-ring handbook binder includes background information on the kit’s topic, along with diagrams, worksheets, coloring pages, teaching tips, curricula, and lesson plans for educating both children and adults. Each kit is housed in its own storage bin with a folding luggage cart available to make transporting them easy.
The Teaching Kits are available for FREE for a 2 to 3-week loan. For more information on how to reserve a kit, find out more about the kits, or arrange a presentation by a Master Gardener, contact the Master Gardener Program Coordinator in King County, firstname.lastname@example.org, 206-543-0943.
