Planting for the Future

My students need a yard cart, garden tools, mulch and other materials to create a flower bed which will decorate the flag pole in front of the school. We have almost no materials!

My Students

Our school completely focuses STEAM and Project Based Learning which helps engage students. We try to prepare our students for the real world by focusing on 21st century skills and making our projects relate to the real world. Students really love to see how the material we learn is used by professionals.

Most of our students are on free or reduced price lunch which makes the resources we provide for them extremely valuable.

My students get extremely motivated and driven when they know there is a tangible final product.

My Project

Students will be learning how biological systems interact and compete with each other to survive. From biotic/abiotic factors to the effects of fertilizer runoff, a flower bed provides all the hands-on learning they need to cover these units. We need a yard cart, garden tools, mulch and other materials to create a flower bed.

Students will be using the gardening supplies to create a flower bed that can sustain life and look appealing to our school.

The school will be voting on the flower bed proposals to choose one to plant. The winning proposal will be used as the plan for a flower bed where our flag pole stands. Knowing that their project could be used to decorate our school has really engaged the students.
