Living Classroom in September

Living Classroom lessons kicked off this month and students took to the garden!

Living Classroom lessons kicked off this month and students took to the garden! Kindergarteners explore the garden and learn how to become stewards of their environment, first grade students learn about the parts of a plant and plant seedlings, second graders will plant winter wheat to be harvested in the spring. According to Cornell University Research, “A primarily qualitative study presented in Australia showed that “school-based community gardens represent a significant opportunity to embed nutrition, physical activity and environmental sustainability into mainstream curricula.” Living Classroom provides fundamental opportunities for your child to learn standards-based curriculum while also developing a love of their environment!
