Goal

Provide students with a 'real-world' application of science and math in a gardening culminating project. Students will benefit from the classroom lessons as well as the gardening experience. 

 

What will be done with my students

Teach math and science concepts coupled with botanical concepts in the classroom. Then students must make a project in the garden bed outside the classroom. 

 

Benefits to my students

Beatification project as well as science, math lessons. All students in the school will have the pleasure to see the results of the garden. Students who participate will benefit from the lessons. 

 

Describe the Students

All students are ESL students, adult ages ranging from 16-74 

 

Budget Narrative

We have a garden box 4x18x6 that needs fertile soil for the project. We will need to purchase gardening tools for students to use such as rakes, trowels, pruners, and hoses. We also need seeds for planting. In the classroom, we will need rulers, yard sticks, paper, pens, graph paper, folders, and colored pencils for planning and lessons.
