Third graders worked with the Career Center to get garden beds built and installed for our garden we will be planting in the spring to go along with our unit on Life Structures. We also used the beds to talk about area and perimeter to help with where the beds should be placed and how big they should be as well as how much dirt would cover the bottom of the bed.
This all went back to me starting my PBL project in my One Thing learning. I made contact this summer with some community garden members and talked about and received information about school gardens. This is in the beginning stages and we would like to see it grow into a school wide project. We would like it to take many avenues for learning as well as using the resources from the garden within our own school and community.
This changed my learning to help my teaching become more real world and hands on learning. I'm excited to see where this will take them!
