FAO’s new Teaching Toolkit

The Food and Agriculture Organization has just released a new companion guide to the “Setting Up and Running a School Garden” manual, which features eight comprehensive, step-by-step lessons for teachers to implement in their class-gardens.

The lessons contain information on everything from garden planning and produce marketing to seed sowing and composting. Each lesson is divided into informative sections: teacher’s notes, objectives, technical content, lesson preparation, lesson activities, lesson follow-ups and guides all geared toward a hands-on learning experience.

The goal of the lessons is to try and “engage learners actively and encourage them to observe and experiment. The reflective element of experiential learning – monitoring, reporting, recording, reviewing, discussing, and listening to others – is built into the lessons.”

Above all, the lessons force students to consider the quality of their own diets, but they also enable the students to make healthy changes to their eating habits. This is a must-read for teachers who have or are considering starting a school garden. It will save hours of logistical planning and provide an excellent jumping-off point for teachers’ own lessons in gardening.

Learn more about the guide whose creed is…

"Tell me, and I will forget.
Show me, and I may remember.
Involve me, and I will understand."

Attributed to Confucius, 450 B.C.

The range of shades and tones on offer both from brands and custom makers allow you to follow themes from shirts, suits ties or socks. The PS3 controller current popularity of the NATO, available in a rainbow of regimental colours, takes this further, allowing you to match strap to watch and outfit at the same time.Matching a strap is quite straight-forward and it is a moment’s work to change a strap should mood and fashion so dictate. The next level has to be matching the dial, sub-dials or hands. Given that changing these on a whim is near enough impossible this sports watch will be a clothes-to-watch match or choosing from a wide selection of watches. Why not pick out a single dial feature such as a coloured chrono second hand and use it to make a statement? That said, maybe matching the multi-coloured weave of a shirt cuff to the jewels and wheels of an exposed movement might be a step too far.For the detail obsessives amongst us (and which watch-nerd is not detail obsessive?) this is a fun way to enjoy the tremendous work that goes into producing all the disparate elements of the watches that we love. It is also a great excuse to add to your watch collection with the endless number of niches to fill, be it colour, metal or style, and, working for a watch auction house, that is something I can only be in favour of.I have spoken to 4 people over the tattoos wholesale years who wear these types of watches: not amazing mechanical complications, but heavily jewel encrusted watches. Prices ranged from EUR 430,000 to USD 1.6 million (that later was a quote I heard, but I am sure that the owner would have negotiated a discount). 1 woman had a hedge fund manager husband and she herself came from an old money background. It's just another piece of jewellery to her, like a necklace. Two other owners worked in bond trading and commodities: one bought his because he wanted a bit of fun, something a little crazy, the other actually bought his because ultra slim touch screen watch of a very successful trade in diamonds and platinum and he wanted something to commemorate the success and to show off to the people who got screwed on the other end of the deal...and when your year end bonus is over $5 million in a bad year and maybe 5 times that in a good year, what else are you going to buy if you have the yacht, the numerous properties but you are not especially fond Music Angel of flying? The final owner was an interesting guy: average background but made a fortune in IT. He actually showed it to me in the box, would not put it on - he actually felt too embarrassed to wear it! He normally wore a Seiko, but he drove a Gallardo, a Gemballa Porsche, Ferrari Testarossa (yes, the wetalk game old one, he fell in love with it as a kid watching Miami Vice!). He would alternatively wear Costco bought clothes or Versaces stuff, didn't really care. A strange collection of people in my experience!!!I thought only the tasteless nouveau-riche wore these types of watches - you know, the Jersey Shore/Hip Hop crowd, who couldn't give a shit about the depth of the watch cheap watches industry as a whole. 745TDBanty 130816
