My students need composting resources and lab coats to dress for success during our science centers!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I work in a small, fully inclusive charter school, where almost seventy percent of the students receive free or reduced-price lunch. I work with students who are labeled in many ways: ELL, LD, ID, BIP, IEP, SLP, apraxic, autistic, ADD, ADHD, ODD, and the list goes on. I'm working to help students remove their labels and find their feet, as well as their voices.
My students come from a variety of backgrounds, but one thing they have in common is their thirst for creative learning opportunities.
My students need lab coats and composting resources to start our garden out right!
Composting is a science!
Students dressed in scrubs and lab coats would feel as though they were as important as the inventors and scientists we've been studying all year. As we move into gardening, composting, and lifecycles of plants, these resources would increase engagement and excite our young scientists. Earth Day has arrived and it's the perfect time of year to explore plants. We want kids to dig into the earth, clean up the earth and rebuild the earth with composting and cultivating plants native to our community. This is the start of a fascinating plant unit with students dressing the part with new lab coats and starting a healthy, composting station.
