My Project

Our Deaf and Hard of Hearing students are happy about being back in school with their peers with fewer COVID restrictions. They have been excited about using the garden beds in front of our classroom and have worked hard pulling the weeds and cleaning the beds. The students came up with questions about gardening and we researched the answers online because our class had few gardening books. They selected the seeds they wanted to plant, and eat: carrots, corn, beans, radishes, tomatoes, sunflowers, and nasturtiums and mapped out their garden.

Now it is time for the students to learn how to maintain their active garden while the are plants growing and plan for their next garden.

The students can achieve this by reading more about gardening, documenting their plant growth and journaling about their gardening experiences.
