The Early Learning Center (ELC) at the University of Tennesssee, Knoxville encourages their children to get dirty! Children need new and fun ways to learn during the summer in a more relaxed atmosphere. Gardening is a great way to get kids involved in a fun learning experience. These types of experiences open opportunities to learn about science and math as well as teaching responsibilities such as watering or checking the plants. The ELC has a garden in which the children participate in everything from planting to harvesting their crops. Enjoy the video with Marco Villarreal from WVLT Local 8 news as he talks with one student from the ELC about her gardening experiences.
