Help me give my students the materials they need to plant and grow an indoor vegetable garden.
I have thirty-six culturally diverse students. We are part of a Title I school where everyone gets free breakfast and lunch. Many of our students come from poverty-stricken homes and need more than just an education from me. They need love, acceptance, and support as well.
This group is extra special because they are my first group in a collaborative classroom.
It is an amazing opportunity that I am so thankful to share with these kids and my new co-teacher.
In first-grade we study lifecycles of plants and animals. With an indoor vegetable garden my students will be able to plant seeds, care for them, and watch them grow into vegetables that they can cook and eat in class. Many of them think that vegetables come from the grocery store and have never grown their own garden. This would give the chance to do this.
We would fill the storage container with the Miracle-Gro potting mix and then plant rows of seed, just like you would do in an outdoor garden.
It would be the students responsibility to care for the plants, with my assistance, each day. After watching the seed grow into plants, and produce vegetables. We will clean, cook, and eat them in class together! It will be a memory they will never forget!
