Help me give my students the materials they need to develop a deeper understanding of the plants and animals that live in our school garden and our neighborhood.
My students are very sweet, intelligent, and ready to learn. Every student is unique and every student can learn. We are fortunate enough to have a school garden which we visit weekly. Each week the students make observations about what they notice in the garden. They use their journals to illustrate their observations and to write simple sentences about what they notice. The students love our garden. How do I know? Because they are continually asking, "Is today garden day"?
The students live in an urban area and often lack access to large open spaces and the exploration of the natural world that these spaces allow. The students will work together in small groups and independently. They will use our existing school garden to make connections to the larger world around them.
By supplying the students with these materials they will develop a deeper understanding of each element of the mini-ecosystem that exists in our school garden.
They will produce an oral presentation and a written report including illustrations obtained from our garden. In their presentation they will describe in detail the types of plants and animals in our garden and their interrelatedness.
