My students need a variety of seeds, potting soil, aprons, and storage containers for our harvest projects.
Academic integration is the goal; education needs to make a connection between “real life” and school work.
I teach Teen Living to approximately 200 seventh and eighth grade students in a rural, low income/high poverty community (2/3 of the student body receives free or reduced lunch benefits).
This grant would allow my students to combine ecology concepts (planting and harvesting) with food production/preparation/preservation into a group of hands-on units of discovery.
Without this equipment (seeds, potting soil, aprons, and storage containers) these units of discovery will not be possible. With this variety of equipment, experiencing ecology in the kitchen will be an actuality. By using food preparation techniques to reinforce the science/ecology concepts, the students can relate practical, hands-on lessons with their science curriculum.
We need your help to make this vision possible.
Your assistance with this project will ensure that my students make the connection of ecology/science to “real life”. This will be accomplished by giving them a practical application for the standards being addressed in their science classroom. My students will be able to feed their families if you can Help FEED USA Feed Our Futures!
