1568Re: [EASCI] communication for entry 4
- Jan 5, 2008I involved my local garden club in helping my students beutify (flowers, shrubs, soil) a veterans memorial on school property. It brought our science lessons about plants to life and it thrilled the garden club and the local American Legion.I also used guest speakers in the classroom. I brought a state troopper who investigates accidents to talk to the student during our unit on force & motion, an opthamologist and dentist during our anatomy unit. There are people from your community and even parents who could share their skills with the students.If you have a local college or junior college they are also a good resource. I did a joint project with one in my area to test local well water. (rural community)I hope this has given you some ideas.
