7 Great Places to Squeeze in Summer Learning

In the Vegetable Garden


From measuring the distance between seeds to knowing how much to water your plants, a garden is a great place to squeeze in a quick math lesson. As you are planning your garden, ask your child to read the back of the seed packet to you, so you can determine how much sun and shade each plant will need.

Start a compost pile to use as fertilizer and have your child add to it throughout the summer. When it comes time to harvest your crop, count how many of each types of vegetable you were able to get, and then add them all up to see how big your bounty is. She'll get a kick out of seeing her hard work end up on the dinner table!
