Help me give my students herb pods, essential oils, and coconut oil to create a calming classroom, promoting peace and mindfulness.
My students are eager, bright, and like all students, excited to experience all the current learning that this 21st century can bring them. They love art each week, walking in with huge smiles and open hearts, always ready to explore the arts. "The future belongs to young people with an education and the imagination to create." –President Barack Obama
Inquisitive, creative, artistic, and ready to explore art across the curriculum!
Yes, this describes my student population! I teach art education to over 470 students per week. Yes, I teach all the students in our predominantly neighborhood school. As an educator, I am always on a quest to teach my students skills that will help them both in school and in life beyond. We love discovering innovative ways to connect art to other subjects and to create a safe and caring environment in our classroom for all students.
My art classroom is a wealth of learning for not only the visual sense but for all the senses. My students get so excited to enter the art room, always a buzz of activity, a myriad of sights, sounds, and smells.
For this project, my students will connect with environmental science and dear Mother Nature, planting herbal seeds, and smelling invigorating and uplifting scents.
We love the Miracle-Gro AeroGarden Bounty Elite, a tabletop herb garden that lets students, watch and monitor herbs growing from tiny seeds to full-size plants!
They love to watch and monitor the herbs, checking them each week to see how much they've grown. Plants growing in a classroom always create excitement for young students, and these herbs not only are fun to watch but exciting to smell. My students love to draw plants, in all stages of growth.
We also need some more essential oils for our diffuser, and want to make some table top aromatherapy bottles for added scents to our work and our classroom. Who doesn't love to smell peppermint when one's energy level is low! Rosemary is such a pick me up too! And lavender is great when calmness is needed. The art room provides truly a world of learning! STEAM, is STEM, with the most needed component added, yes Art! This project connects with learning in so many ways.
