This project will provide a hands-on opportunity to help students learn the curriculum and an opportunity for students to connect socially. This garden will allow for engagement of all grade levels. Each grade level has plant standards in the curriculum. Kindergarten will learn to group plants by their physical features. 1st-grade students will identify the root, stem, leaf, and flower of plants and determine a plant's basic needs. 2nd-grade students dive into the cycle of plants from seed to full growth and will record the changes over time. 3rd-grade students investigate the plant's habitats, identify changes that affect the survival of plants, and examine the soil's influence. The 4th-grade curriculum requires that students evaluate and communicate the role of plants. 5th-grade students will classify plants as seed or non-seed producers. Students will also have fun identifying the organelles of plants. Remember those awesome days of looking at cells under the microscope? Chloroplast, cytoplasm, mitochondrion, it makes you want to join us. Students benefit from hands-on work and are more attentive. Getting down in the dirt and seeing the results of their labor will stay with them for a lifetime. It's science, and science is best learned by doing! This garden will provide the mental and social stimulation needed to help students excel! The garden will also be a focal point of our 4th and 5th grades Diversity Club. The club will add aesthetic value by contributing painted rocks that represent their uniqueness. Due to society's current conflicts, there is a need to teach the importance of diversity, and bring students together to better understand the world around us.
