In this sixth grade orientation, the Edible Schoolyard's garden staff brings visual aids and props into students' indoor classroom to introduce the behavioral expectations for their upcoming garden classes.
In this sixth grade science class, students will begin to understand the process of decomposition and learn about the organisms responsible for breaking down matter. Students will also begin to make the connection with finished compost as food for plants in the garden.
In this sixth-grade Edible Schoolyard class, students are welcomed back after the winter break to start the new semester. They discuss seasonality in depth and review how the 4B’s can be applied in the garden (Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be an Ally).
In this sixth-grade science lesson, students explore and study flowers like scientists do, learn about and practice scientific drawing, label a flower's structures and their function, and discuss their findings, questions, and ideas.
In this sixth-grade lesson, students experience cooking and eating outdoors. Instead of the usual Closing Circle in the Ramada, we enjoy fresh food and good conversation as we eat together at the long table to celebrate the last 6th grade garden class of the year.
In this eighth-grade garden class, students review how the 4B’s (Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be an Ally) can be applied in the garden and break into groups to work in the garden on different tasks.
