Answer: I would suggest placing the greenhouse so that the broad side faces south, to maximize light exposure. Since many school activities will take place in fall, winter, and spring, the extra light and warmth will help extend the growing season. As far as what to grow, you'll want to consider, for example, what concepts you are trying to show. You might, for example, compare vegetative propagation by rooting cuttings versus seed-propagated plants. I suggest you visit our Kids Gardening web site and scan some of the articles and activities for ideas and information.
