How Does Your Classroom Grow?

 

Eggshell Seed Starting Pots

http://www.pallensmith.com/index.php?id=1052 

Growing plants in your class brings health and learning benefits. Whether it is seedlings for a school garden or a ficus that will remain in you class for years like a friendly face, the daily involvment in tending, measuring, and appreciating the beauty of the process of growth for your students is greatly more than the slight cost of time and organization. Don't have a green thumb? I bet some of your students or parents do. You can involve STEM activities, art lessons, and even run a class science project to see if plants grow better with Mozart (they do. Kids do, too.) Maybe a teaching colleague would like to collaborate in a joint project for Earth Day.

Is Your Classroom A Petri Dish For Illness?


This schoolyear teachers, students, and families are faced with serious communicable health risks to every generation. The first precaution is timely and appropriate vaccinations. Then, teachers (and families) should provide healthy environments and experiences so students and staff are less likely to fall victim to this year's serious round of infectious diseases. Influenza is serious this year. Whooping Cough has made a comeback, with Measles coming right behind. When watching the news, its like a movie and you expect Dustin Hoffman to appear in full hazmat suit, particularly when patient zero spreads measles from Disneyland. What's a teacher to do?
