Learning Through Growing

My students need a variety of seeds to grow and observe during the spring growing season.

My Students

Do you remember the excitement in your eyes as you watched something grow and change? How accomplished did you feel after taking on responsibility for the growth of something else? My students are rolling up their sleeves in order to dig in and help some young seeds grow.

My students are a part of a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics school with a high poverty rate.

Don't let the poverty rate fool you though. These students are rich in knowledge and desire to learn. Being a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics magnet school, my students are continually looking at ways to learn and experience new methods to learning that are both interesting and challenging. They want to get their hands on materials, so they can manipulate, measure, and make meanings out of the concepts they are learning.

My Project

My students got the growing itch in the fall when they had the short opportunity to grow some seeds before the first frost. Now they are ready to dig in deeper to learn the math and science behind growing a garden, along with the responsibility of providing and caring for a living plant. With these seeds, my students will be able to observe, track, measure, and provide for seeds and plants that will provide them with an experience far beyond the garden.

Now is your opportunity to help my students learn about the math, science, and responsibility of growing a garden.

Your chance to provide them with the seeds of plants and knowledge to grow crops and understanding.
