Interactions in the Garden

Interactions in the Garden

Third grade students at West Oakland's Hoover Elementary visit the school garden with garden instructor, Ali Goldstein, to explore interactions among diverse species of plants and animals. This experiential lesson illustrates strategies for eliciting student ideas, encouraging peers to engage with each other's reasoning and listen to one another, and deepening student thinking.
