High School Gardening Project
The High School students at Diamond are getting “down” and “dirty” with their new gardening project! Mrs. Jefferson introduced the students to two new plants called Coleus and Oyster Plants. They have been responsible for tilling, planting and watering these new plants. The students have been working on their gardening project for a month so far, and are real delighted to see the results of their hard work! Every week, the students have the responsibility of watering and measuring the growth of their plants.
In Science the students have been studying soil, weathering and erosion and how this affects the growth of plants. “For the students it was an unexpected change of pace. Students are eager daily to get out and tend their plants!” stated Mrs. Jefferson. Learning in the classroom has taken a new understanding when the students are able to see how their garden functions.
Not only are the students able to learn more about the ecosystem, there are also other opportunities of learning. They are able to participate in the beatification process of the school. This gives them an opportunity to take pride in the school as well as themselves. It also teaches them responsibility and caring for their environment as responsible citizens. Diamond Community School, Inc. is thrilled to be providing opportunities where students can grow and learn information that will be valuable to their future!
