A Garden Plot: The Tale of Peter Rabbit
The purpose of this unit is to incorporate an agricultural theme into the reading, writing, and science concepts that are taught in the classroom. The lesson, using "The Tale of Peter Rabbit" and other stories by Beatrix Potter, encourages students to think about where their food comes from, distinguish between fact and fiction, and write about personal experiences they have while caring for gardens of their own.
