All About Almonds e-Learning Module – Ever see a tree shake? You might be curious to learn how almonds are grown and harvested! In this e-Learning Module (best for 3rd grade and up), learners will explore how almonds grow, are pollinated, are harvested and enjoyed. 

Accessibility – we are redesigning our online learning modules to be accessible to:

  • visually impaired.
  • deaf or hard-of-hearing individuals.
  • neurodivergent learners, offering both visual and auditory options means learners can use the one that suits them best.
  • English as a second language learners benefit from both spoken and written versions, as they might be able to read/hear the language more easily than the other.

The Soil in Jackie’s Garden & Educator’s Guide – The newest book from Feeding Minds Press, The Soil in Jackie’s Gardenwill be released on May 29. Join Jackie and her garden friends in this charming picture book as they discover the wonders of gardening, soil secrets, and the magic of composting. We will also be creating an accompanying educator’s guide for K-2 learners to take learning further. 

Outdoor Farm, Indoor Farm Educator’s Guide – Outdoor Farm, Indoor Farm is an adorable book releasing April 9 from Astra Young Readers. This book takes readers on a journey about how their food is grown, both inside and outside. We will create standards-aligned lessons for K-2 students exploring different kinds of farms.
