Aeroponic Gardening in 4th Grade

Aeroponic Gardening in 4th Grade
Posted on 01/14/2022

Dayton Creek 4th graders are getting the opportunity for real world, hands-on learning with the addition of an Aeroponic Tower Garden. The garden was purchased with funds Mrs. Daniels received from a SHEF (Spring Hill Education Foundation) Grant.

The aeroponic garden allows for year-round gardening. Students will plant, harvest, and create healthy snacks. They will also have the chance to explore the structure and function of the plants which is a 4th grade science standard.

Reinforcing our Leader in Me program, students will get to take ownership through a variety of jobs that include adding minerals and checking the pH balance of the aeroponic system.
