Exploring the School Yard Habitat
Our fourth graders will spend the first semester of school exploring the School Yard Habitat. They will get up close and personal with the gardens that surround our school! Students will research and report on the many varieties of plants, trees and shrubs growing in our Outdoor Classroom. They will become experts and share their knowledge with their schoolmates and local community members through the creation of Field Guides. These brochures will teach others about the history of our gardens and what can be found growing in them.
Students will create plant signs for our gardens too. They will paint wooden spoons with the names of almost all the plants in our gardens. This is the second part or their plant research project.
