Growing Brain Food for Growing Minds

Help me give my students the chance to use the LED grow light to grow their own nutritious fresh food, and learn the skills to prepare it in our kitchens.

My Students

My students are willing to learn and like to do hands on projects. In their Family and Consumer Science classroom they are a busy bunch. They often have many projects going on at once. Students appreciate the opportunity to learn skills and have a product to show for their effort!

My Project

This grow light will give the students the opportunity to grow a living plant. From seed stage to harvest stage the student will be involved with the planting, watering, harvest, and preparation. In my classroom, the windows are a tinted glass, this made even growing our herbs very difficult. However, the big ledge will provide a good size indoor garden.

Everyday students will come into the classroom and check the variety of vegetables that they are growing.

With the grow light and knife kit the students will be taking care of their basic needs and practicing hands on skills to benefit them today and tomorrow. They are always excited when something new appears in the classroom. Students show a real concern about their eating habits and these materials can give them skills to learn to work with and eat whole foods.
