The Learning Garden

My students need the chrome book to document their experiences in their class garden as they transition from being consumers to producers.

My Students

From Crops to Shops, "Where Does Food Come From?" I bet if you asked a group of students this question their answers would be "the grocery store". I was selected as a Kenan Fellow this year and I am working with my students to help them better understand, "where" their food actually comes from.

My students live in a very rural, agriculture rich community but, still have no idea as to what it takes to grow many of the foods they eat daily.

This generation is use to being able to go to the grocery store our fast food restaurant and decide what they will have for dinner without giving any thought to the fields of cucumbers they may have passed on their way to school. Just maybe one of the cucumbers will become a pickle on their Whopper at Burger King. My students are disconnected from agriculture and the importance it plays in today's society.

My Project

A Chrome Book would help to enhance my students experiences as Junior Farmers by allowing them to journal and reflect on their daily experiences in our learning garden from beginning to end. My students will build four raised bed gardens in which they will grow strawberries; this task will allow them to experience first hand what it takes to a population.

Many students in my class do not have access to technology outside of school and need every opportunity possible to use technology in order to prepare them to become globally competitive.
