This year was a pilot testing year for our 4-H curriculum, Soil Solutions. It was piloted at Cape Fear Elementary School (2 classrooms) and Malpass Corner Elementary School (2 classrooms). Soil Solutions is developed for 3rd grade and aligns with the standard course of study. Students learn about soil properties, soil and water relationships, soil and plant growth, seed germination, pollination, and composting.
The 3rd grade students at Malpass Corner Elementary School planted their very own garden while learning from the 4-H curriculum, Soil Solutions! They grew tomato and corn plants from a seed, and were donated some cabbage plants ready to go in the soil! Here are some photos of the school garden back in late April!
