My students need books at different reading levels, including 3 copies of "Wiggling Worms at Work " and "Green Kid's Guide to Composting," to help support the community wide effort to turn food scraps from our lunches into nutrient rich soil.
You are what you eat! Healthy eating is the key to well-being. Unfortunately, many children do not make healthy food choices. My school has a plan to show how fun it is to grow your own food by installing our own gardens. We will get nutrient rich soil for this by composting our food scraps.
My students attend a large, urban K-8 public school in Wisconsin.
They come from several different countries and over 16 different languages are spoken here. The students in my building are respectful of each other and accept the differences each one brings into the classroom. This helps to create a family-like atmosphere in our building. Because of this, very few students leave before completing eighth grade.
I am requesting a variety of fun and informative books at different grade levels to help introduce the concept of composting, which the entire school will be starting this fall. We hope to create nutrient rich soil from our food scraps throughout the year. This soil will eventually be used by our students and community members to create our very own healthy gardens.
This project is very important to the students in my building.
They will be able to experience how fun it is to grow healthy and tasty food from rich soil we created. This experience will help to create healthy lifelong habits for years to come, long after they leave our building.
