STE Standards in the Garden: Taking Life Science, Engineering and Sustainability Learning Outdoors
Presented by: Wachusett Regional School District
Strand: K-12 Education
Explore an STE aligned gardening trajectory that pairs garden tasks with grade level standards to create a vertically aligned gardening curriculum. Grade level sustainability and engineering tasks are included to further student learning and engage them in the science and engineering practices in an authentic learning environment. The exhibit will display sample lesson plans and student work. Community partnerships will be highlighted to demonstrate how local outreach can enable schools to provide similar learning opportunities for their students.
