Growing Minds Day by Day: Week of March 30

This week’s theme is mud and soil. Welcome to “Growing Minds Day by Day”, a compilation of educational resources for use by families and educators during the COVID-19 quarantine (and beyond!). Each week, the Growing Minds team will select a theme related to food, gardens, or nature, and share thematic recommendations for children’s literature, activities, recipes, and online resources.
