Goal

My classroom has taken on creating a school wide garden where we can grow plants, vegetables, and fruit. Our goal is to purchase live plants, markers, cages and other items to help create and sustain our spring garden.  

 

What will be done with my students

Students will learn the importance of growing our own produce, about fertilizers, and watering to start, sustain and grow our plants. Once we have the funding to get started other teachers will allowed to participate with their students. We have planting tables, hose's and cans for watering and dirt to get started. We need to purchase plants and supplies to go from there to get our spring garden going.  

 

Benefits to my students

The benefits to our students and school are immense. We are a center school where we teach our special needs students so many academic and career choices within their education. As part of our science and career curriculum with our students we will be able to teach memorable and hands on lessons. Additionally, within the field of science we can teach the related concepts to the life cycle of what we plant. In the field of career education, we will be able to teach the benefits, resources, and career options that come within the field of gardening. Additionally, these are skills that our students will be able to learn and help our special needs students within their daily lives for years to come. This project will benefit our entire school, get our students outside and moving, and provide us with supplies we need to support our garden for years to come. Through financial literacy we will be able to teach students about the costs of the plants and supplies. We will be able to measure, weigh and count items we grow. We will also be able to compare local store ads to see what the items we grow are selling for and determine their retail value. Items grown can be harvested and shared around the school and provided for other classes lessons.
