What's New With You
Grade 4 GardenGrade four has been using their habits of mind in the garden. We have been working interdependently to address problems such as pests and air borne viruses in the garden. Students have been using caring and cooperation to care for plants daily. They have been risktaking by trying new fruits and vegtables prepared in different ways.
Our next step is to spread the habits of mind to the homes. Will do this by sending home a basket of fruits and vegtables to a family each week - chosen randomly so that each family gets the basket at least once a year (caring and cooperation towards families). Families will contribute to a community cook book by logging in how they prepared the food (risktakers - interdependent thinkers).
Our ultimate goal is for students to take what they learn sustainability and healthy living into the world around us.
