About My Students

In the class of Maker Education, all of our students work on many projects, with some activities that require some tools and material. The class recently started to have a project helping out on the school, which is composting.

Together they help the school's environment and keep the school clean by recycling old materials that were left behind and not used. Some students in our class, named Kate, Victoria, and Angelina learn twenty-first century skills that allow them to use to cross disciplinary environment.

Erik, Kevin, and Lydia are the leaders for this project. They are the classroom leaders for our Maker Space elective. Everyday these three go to the garden and check the status of the crops. The three leaders are also in charge of planning weekly gardening activities for the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade classes.

Gardening teaches students many skills. For one, it teaches us responsibility. We are responsible for keeping the garden clean, watering our crops, removing the weeds, and taking care of the tools. The garden also teaches us about where our food comes from. A great skill especially when our city is considered a food desert.

In Their Own Words

Improve our students gardening skills.

Make our school garden more welcoming to other schools.

Produce a reliable amount of edible crops.

Create a school culture around healthy eating.

Inviting community members to join the garden.

Give students an opportunity to practice being responsible.

Create a school culture that is focused on reducing their carbon footprint.

As the leaders of this gardening project we will use this opportunity to improve the over all school culture. We believe if our school had more healthy options we could improve the lives of our students. We will also use this opportunity to teach the younger grades how to be respectful.

Many years ago, our school had an award winning rose garden. Today we have a pit of dirt. We believe if we can beautify our garden it will not only improve over all happiness at our school, but also improve our reputation in the community. Our school also plans to use this opportunity to increase the amount of healthy food options available for our school.
