Day 127: Plant Parenthood – The Big Grow

IMG_4137

Students in IS I are going to embark on a plant growing/marketing project. They will investigate soil classification, pH, porosity, and permeability in conjunction with growing annuals that they will sell in late May. All groups also run an experiment as part of the Big Grow, manipulating a variable such as the amount of fertilizer or the type of soil. The highlight of the introduction of the project was the visit to the rooftop greenhouse. Most students at the HS never get to see the greenhouse and many don’t even know we have one.
