National Bullying Prevention Month

Did you know the whole month of October is dedicated to bullying prevention?

We want our garden students to take the mentality of not only caring for our plants, but for one another. Our hope is that when students learn actions, such as, caring for plants, insects, and classmates in the garden these actions will be utilized in other environments, such as in the classroom and at home.

As we approach lesson #2 and #3, students will be engaged working together in the gardens. Students will learn about insects and the caring work needed to put the garden to bed for the season. Working in teams can provide a sense of unity. We want our gardens to be a place students feel safe and comfortable working with their peers.

Lesson #2

The beginning of October means lesson #2 is making its way into the gardens! This fall, lesson #2 is about ‘what makes an insect an insect’.

We will be discovering the insects living among our own school gardens. Students will learn the five parts of an insect: head, thorax, abdomen, legs, and antenna.
