Welcome students and introduce the Edible Schoolyard garden program.
Each small group of students starts at various points along the hike, allowing each group to participate in the activity simultaneously with enough space between.
To play, Students introduce themselves by their first name followed by a word associated with the garden that begins with the same letter (Simona Sunshine, Isaiah Iceberg Lettuce, and so on...).
Frame the students’ 10 minutes of self-guided exploration time.
Welcome students back to the Ramada and lead them through the Whip-Around activity.
1. Garden teachers and students share their garden names and one of their observations or questions.
Integrate visual information (e.g. in charts, graphs, photographs, videos, or maps) with other information in print and digital texts
Integrate information presented in different media or formats (e.g., visually, quantitatively) as well as in words to develop a coherent understanding of a topic or issue.
Engage effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher- led) with diverse partners on grade 6 topics, texts, and issues, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly.
Students work with each other and teachers to develop community and personal stewardship, along with skills that will help them navigate different situations throughout their lives.
ESY students and teachers create an atmosphere of cooperation and unity. We elevate the class experience for all by offering and receiving encouragement, and welcoming the ideas and contributions of others.
ESY students and teachers notice and appreciate beauty. We take ownership in pleasing and awakening our senses to communicate care and value, because beauty can deliver a message of optimism and expectation without saying a word.
All lessons at the Edible Schoolyard Berkeley are a collaboration between the teachers and staff of the Edible Schoolyard and Martin Luther King, Jr. Middle School.
