My Students

We are a Pre K- 2 school with over 800 students. We are a Title I school and most of our students are on free or reduced price lunch. Most of our students eat breakfast and lunch at school and with some, this is the most nutritious meal they will receive each day. The administration, lunchroom workers, and teachers at our school promote healthy eating. The students are provided healthy fruits and lunches each day.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, schools are closed, the students are home, and they may not practice healthy eating habits nor may they have access to fruits and veggies daily.

Providing seeds to create their own gardens will help promote healthy eating while school is out.

My Project

This activity will allow students to experience gardens as living laboratories. They will be required to label each finger of a plastic glue, wet a cotton ball, place a seed or seeds on the cotton ball, place it in the glove, tie it up and watch it grow. The students will be required to keep a journal of the seeds progress. I truly believe that memories are made when hands are involved and I love the idea of the students making garden memories with their families; whether it is using the garden to learn, do a craft or harvest together.

The Garden in a Glove idea will aide in creating a mini-green house with a plastic glove so that all the sprouting and growing is visible to young inquisitive minds!

This activity is very simplistic and yet educational at the same time.
