Creating a Sustainable Garden Project
In this project, students will learn about the importance of sustainable gardening practices and how they can be implemented in their own homes and communities. The learning outcomes for this project include:
- Understanding the principles of sustainable gardening
- Identifying the benefits of sustainable gardening
- Designing and creating a sustainable garden
- Collaborating with peers to complete a group project
Students will begin by learning about the principles of sustainable gardening through class discussions and research. They will then work in groups to design and create a sustainable garden using recycled materials and native plants. Students will be required to document their progress through photos and written reflections. The project will culminate in a class presentation where each group will showcase their garden and explain the sustainable practices they implemented.
- Recycled materials (e.g. old tires, pallets, etc.)
- Native plants
- Gardening tools (e.g. shovels, gloves, etc.)
- Cameras or smartphones for documenting progress
