Senses in the Garden

Take a tour of the garden using all five senses. Students will experience the sights, smells, sounds, textures, and tastes of materials found in the garden, and practice descriptive language and communication skills. 

Seed Study

Explore the life cycle of a plant through story and observation, with particular attention to seeds and their dispersal. After learning about the necessities of plant life, each student will construct a germination chamber and start an observation journal to take home and record the growth of their own seedling.

Soil Recipe

Students will make a soil recipe and plant their own seedling. Students will feel different components of the soil recipe (sphagnum, compost, vermiculite, sand) and learn what each does. Students will compare absorbency and density between soil components.
