My students are eager and excited to learn about agriculture and where their food comes from. The students that I work with are from all grades in the school. I work with their homeroom teachers to create a interactive learning experience.
My students come from a background where having a garden and learning how their food grows is not an option.
Each time we grow a new plant and watch them grow. The kids are so excited to see that all their hard work pays off. They love to taste the food they grow and even take home to share with their families.
The values my students learn from the garden is creating a great future for them. They always tell their families what we have done and when they see me out of school run up to me to tell about what they taught their family members.
The rocks and minwax gloss coating will create math and interactive games in the garden space. As well as an art project where the students will paint the rocks into different garden bugs. A few examples of the games are tic-tac-toe, math arrays and bar graphs.
With the soil, seeds and tools the students will be able to grow and data collect in the greenhouse.
We will then plant them in our edible school yard. The students will learn to harvest and make their own salsa. This creates and hands-on learning experience for the students.
The steps and work that the students will take away from this project will build their confidence and problem solving skills. Creating a pathway to a brighter future for healthy living, eating and how their food comes to be.
