What you'll learn in this early childhood class:

A growing body of research indicates that plant-based learning projects, such as indoor gardening and school gardens, are powerful teaching tools inside and outside the classroom. These activities provide an atmosphere that incorporates hands-on learning and strengthens academic, personal and social development while encouraging children to develop critical skills such as healthful living, stewardship, decision-making, and self-sufficiency. 

This course provides participants with an introduction to botany and applications for plant-based learning inside and outside the classroom, even in limited space. We will move beyond bean investigations by exploring cutting edge methods for growing plants and for learning through plant-based projects. Cross-curricular connections will be made through scientific inquiry and literacy as we explore how to use plants to understand phenomena and the world we inhabit. Participants will receive seeds, plants and materials for continued exploration at their schools.

This class will meet on campus. Proof of Covid-19 vaccination is required. 

Focus On: Pre-k - 4th Grade
