Taking It For "Grant"ed

Time to focus on this year's goal after spending two weeks in a science STEM grant. I really need to connect with other science teachers so that we can start helping each other incorporate the new Next Generation Science Standards. During my last two weeks, we worked on a unit that incorporates FOSS and the Next Generation standards in 3rd grade for interdependent relationships in ecosystems and Life Cycles and Traits. We also used the second grade interdependent relationships in ecosystems to create a greenhouse idea that I think will be so much fun for the kiddos. We will be using it in our 2nd grade FOSS unit, plants. Speaking of plants... we received a Farm to School Grant to build a school garden, and have we ever. Check out our garden.
