My goal for this project is to teach students about plant reproduction and development. We will learn how we rely on wildlife and other natural factors to aide in plant reproduction through our hanging gardens. I want our students to have a hands on experience they can take part in to further their understanding of what they are taught in the classroom. Active engagement leads to active learning.

Goal

My goal for this project is to teach students about plant reproduction and development. We will learn how we rely on wildlife and other natural factors to aide in plant reproduction through our hanging gardens. I want our students to have a hands on experience they can take part in to further their understanding of what they are taught in the classroom. Active engagement leads to active learning. 

 

What will be done with my students

For this project, my Agriculture and STEM special area classes will design and build garden posts. We will use hanging baskets to line the sides of a post and learn how we can use gravity to water our plants and therefore conserve water. Each post will also have a birdhouse to attract natural wildlife to aide in plant reproduction. We will place these gardens around the school and use various types of flowers and bird houses to attract different species.  

 

Benefits to my students

This project will have multiple benefits for our students. Our students will learn about plant reproduction and the role of symbiosis with how wildlife plays a significant role in the process. This project will be enhanced as our students will learn about the process through our zSpace 3D interactive computers and then be able to apply that knowledge in a real life working environment. The students will also learn about animal lifecycles as the birds build their nests and their eggs hatch. This project benefits all students in our school because all students take part in our Agriculture and STEM program during special area each week. This project will cover multiple state tested science and math standards.  

 

Budget Narrative

The funds for this project will be used to purchase all materials ranging from 4x4 posts to all plants and necessary hardware/brackets to mount the plants to the posts. We will also need dirt and materials to stain the posts.
