Garden

Sanders Elementary students have worked in the Sanders garden. The students planted and harvested chocolate peppermint, broccoli, and cabbage. It is a wonderful life experience to plant and watch the vegetables grow. They felt a sense of responsibility and accomplishment to weed and water the gardens. It was most exciting to harvest the finish product. We hope that it is an experience they repeat as adults to live a healthy life.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Classroom teachers took turns taking students to visit the garden to weed, plant, water & harvest the vegetables.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Classroom teachers took turns taking students to visit the garden to weed, plant, water & harvest the vegetables.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

Will continue with the garden and try new items each year.
