Help me give my students metal pergolas, plant support trellises, garden whiskey barrels, and more to make an adapted garden!
I am a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) teacher in a school for children with special needs and abilities. The STEM curriculum is fully adapted to fit our students' needs. I use a multitude of differentiated visuals and hands-on experiments to engage the students in the program. Last year we created an outdoor classroom/garden for our students to experience nature and learn about different plants and insects.
Our school population consists of elementary-aged children who are diagnosed with multiple disabilities and/or autism spectrum disorders.
My students are great, loving and work hard through many challenges.
Our students with specials needs love spending time in our school's adapted garden. This past year we began phase 1 of constructing our garden and would love to expand.
Creating an outdoor classroom/garden, where our students can learn and grow in a safe environment is very important to us.
It allows our students to experience vocational opportunities (working in the garden), student-to-student interaction, opportunities to practice communication skills, learn about things related to STEM (science, engineering,, technology, and math), and promote independence. With this project, we are hoping to create pergolas for shade and grow more fruit. The pots will be used to plant more vegetables to harvest during our summer session. Thank you for taking the time to check out my project!
