Reflection: Co-Teaching Planting Grass - Section 2: Field Trip


This project is a powerful way in which to involve the community. There are often parents in the class who have experience with all or part of the erosion mitigation process, or they know someone who does. This is a great way to pull in professionals from the community to help students understand how the science they are learning is put into practice. This truly makes the learning come alive.
