Ag in the Classroom: Jump Start Your School Garden (K-5th)
Monday, July 15, 8:30 am - 12:30 pm
School gardens are an excellent way to take learning outside of the classroom and have students interact with the natural world. In addition to increasing student engagement, school gardens have been shown to positively impact academic achievement. Jump Start Your School Garden is intended to help educators integrate the use of the garden – whether it is an outdoor garden or an indoor container garden - into their science and mathematics curriculum. Additionally, tips and suggestions have been included for schools who hope to begin a garden or to enhance an existing one.
Free; Registration Required.
