Hello!
I'm looking for lessons/activities covering hydroponics and aquaponics, beyond just the basics of what each of those are. I have searched a few of the typical places I would look for garden based lessons, but haven't turned much up yet.

Any suggestions are much appreciated!

Thanks!

Best,

Aubree Roth

Hi Aubree, 

National Farm to School Network and KidsGardening developed an accessible guide called Exploring Hydroponics.

Developed through a partnership between National Farm to School Network, Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation, and KidsGardening, the Exploring Hydroponics curriculum is available to download at no cost.

This guide includes:

  • basic how-to information for growing plants hydroponically in your classroom;
  • lesson plans to help students learn through hands-on investigations;
  • construction plans for simple hydroponics setups; and
  • additional reference materials to support your endeavors.
Green Our Planet also has a lot of good hydroponics and aquaponics resources.

Best,
Em

Good morning Aubree,

My name is Chelsea Lathrop with Green Our Planet. We have a Virtual Academy on our Website that we are working on releasing hydroponics video lessons each week. You can take a look at greenourplanet.org/virtualacademy. And if you subscribe to our newsletter we send out new lessons every Tuesday! In our Hydroponics Tutorial folder there is also a DIY aquaponics tutorial on how to use a fish tank at home. See here.

Please feel free to contact myself (che...@greenourplanet.org) or Chris Anderson (ch...@greenourplanet.org) our hydroponics manager for more information or ideas. 

Hope this helps!
Chelsea

From one of our wonderful and experienced hydroponics teachers in Chula Vista, California:

Attached is the template I used to start the conversation with students before we engaged in hands on activities.

Please let me know what was helpful or if you have any other questions.  

I think expanding the program's scope into hydro and aquaponics is a great idea.
