        P is for Poppies: an Exploration of World War I | Project Learning Garden

        Students will learn about World War I through the lens of gardening, plants, and foods. Using primary sources, students will investigate life on the home-front and in the trenches, how the Lusitania bombing drew the US into the war, American contributions to the war effort, food conservation and the US Food Administration, the symbolic significance of poppies at Flanders Field, and the Treaty of Versailles. These concepts are explained using this learning resource from Captain Planet's Learning Gardens Program.
