Kids Gardening has a good curriculum post about hydroponics. It is not a unit on hydroponics but provides questions to ponder and areas to look […]

Hydroponic Mini Garden

Basically cut a used bottle in half and turn the upper half upsidedown inside the lower half. stick an unwanted sock through the bottle neck into the […]
