Many of my students live in small neighborhoods with limited exposure to the outdoors. Their families lack the resources, time, and money to create and maintain a garden. Since the majority of my students receive free breakfast and lunch, they don't always have access to seeing and eating fresh fruits and vegetables. My school has done a fantastic job of creating a real garden that all students and staff can use throughout the school day. Every classroom has adopted a part of the garden to plant and maintain. Students are encouraged to try the different foods that are grown in the garden. Last year our students were able to try different lettuces, eggplants, beans, and berries. Any leftover produce is donated to our local food bank. This year I am seeking unique ways to incorporate our school garden into my daily lessons. My students will be spending several weeks exploring the garden. They will learn how to plant different seeds. They will learn different techniques on how to maintain our garden beds from weeding to creating simple greenhouses during cold weather. The garden gloves and kneeling pads will make these activities more enjoyable. They will be moving throughout the grounds interacting and comparing different soil samples, seeds, plants, and insects. We will also learn about how small animals and insects work to make our garden successful. They need clipboards and magnifying glasses to take notes of their scientific discoveries. By creating these authentic experiences with my students, they will learn content vocabulary and be able to connect their experiences to books they read and stories they write. Throughout these lessons my students will grow to appreciate the importance of fresh fruits and vegetables.
