Spring Lessons  
“Being a Plant Scientist”

Spring lessons are rolling out at all of our schools.  The curriculum for lessons will center around the theme, “Being a Plant Scientist.”  Student will use the scientific method to explore and learn about the anatomy of a seed.  They will also chart the growth of seeds they plant after watching the first lesson video.  

As the weather warms we are getting back into the gardens for the hands-on garden learning experiences we all love.  Students have started to return to the garden for lesson two in our three part spring lessons. We couldn’t be happier to see them.  

Lesson two will focus on photosynthesis.  Before heading out to the garden students are asked to make a prediction about where plants get the energy to grow.  Each school will also conduct and observe an experiment using light and a flat of micro-greens.
