Welcome to the 6-8 Garden Kits. We have collaborated on this kit project with the University of Hawai’i Curriculum Research and Development Group by utilizing the state-wide project called FEAST (Food Experiences in Agriculture Science Training) and adding pots and potting soil. The following Plant and Soil Science lesson videos and accompanying materials can be used to dive deeper into the topics discussed in the FEAST lessons.

Plant Parts (6-8)

Understanding the food web is critical to supporting our garden ecosystem. This lesson goes into how we understand the food web and how we manage pests with that knowledge.
Not available

Erosion (6-8)

Topsoil is a necessity to life on the plant. Plants play a crucial role in creating and protecting topsoil by minimizing erosion and increasing water absorption of our soil.
Not available

Plant Life Cycle (6-8)

Recognize how we can protect agricultural biodiversity by implementing traditional agricultural practices like seed saving, using heirloom varieties, and creating polycultures.
Not available

What is Soil? (6-8)

Soil is composed of minerals, water, air and organic matter. Weʻll look at soil composition, soil chemistry(NPK) and overall soil health. Plant health is directly related to soil health, or soil fertility and look at ways of improving.
Not available

Soil Food Web (6-8)

Understanding the food web is critical to supporting our garden ecosystem. This lesson goes into how we understand the food web and how we manage pests with that knowledge.
Not available

Photosynthesis (6-8)

Photosynthesis is a crucial process to all living things by providing two essential components of life on our planet: oxygen and a usable energy source. 
Not available

Pollination (6-8)

The process of pollination is critical to the continuation of the plant lifecycle; learn how it happens and the special adaptations plants and animals have made to survive.
Not available

Compost (6-8)

Compost is our natural recycling system. Learn about what is in compost, the process for making compost and why it is important for our ecosystem.
