Flower, Stem, Leaves, and Roots

My students need 32 greenhouses to visually see the structure and growth of a plant and a crystal growing pack.

My Students

Do you remember how amazed you were the first time you pulled a plant out of the ground and realized that there was something called roots attached? My students still need to discover the wonders of a plant.

I have a wonderful kindergarten class this year.

They are very diverse in the ways they learn. Most of my students are English Language learners and live in low income areas. It is wonderful to see that most of my students did not know how to write their own names at the beginning of the school year, but they are already beginning to read. I currently have fourteen boys and eighteen girls. They love to sing, read, and learn. Due to the vast majority of English language learners in my class they are more visual and tactile learners.

My Project

Howard Gardner explains that there are multiple intelligences. Like Gardner I believe that as teachers we must facilitate the learning process of our students. Most of my students are visual and tactile learners. By granting our request for individual greenhouses, my students will be able to see the growing process of a plant as well as taking an active participation in there learning process. Most of the students at our school live in apartment buildings. They may not be able to grow their own garden, but they can have the understanding of the structure of a plant which they helped grow by having their own greenhouse.

Science is a loved subject in part of our students.

Remember how you looked forward to doing a science project at school? Help my students look forward to growing their own plant in their own individual greenhouse. Help them better understand that a plant is not only a plant, but that it may have a flower, stem, leaves, and roots. Don't leave it up to fate that they one day will see a root be pulled from a garden that they don't have.
