In-person: Intercurricular Connections in the Garden Workshop

When:  Aug 1, 2024 from 09:00:00 AM to 09:00:00 PM (PT)

This workshop is hosted by Life Lab at Life Lab's Garden Classroom on the UC Santa Cruz Campus. 

Learn to use a school garden to provide a meaningful context in which students can apply their emerging skills in math and English language arts. Using lessons from The Growing Classroom activity guide, participants in this workshop will experience and discuss garden activities. Whether they are graphing the temperature of their compost pile over time; reading a recipe to make fresh salsa; writing a story from the perspective of an ant; or presenting to a buddy class on the animals that visited their sunflower patch, the opportunities for children to practice traditional academic subjects in the garden are limitless!
