The Green Bronx Machine Classroom Curriculum is easy to implement, and engages students with inter-disciplinary, hands-on, project-based learning. Created by administrators and educators specifically for educators, each standards-aligned lesson plan and activity set helps students meet a core academic requirement, while also fostering deep knowledge about gardening, food production, and health and wellness. Lesson plans focus on Science, Math and Language Arts, and easily extend to Technology, History, Art and Cooking. Each plan includes supplemental lesson ideas, student handouts, and assessment tools, such as rubrics, exit tickets and reflective journals.
The dynamic, collaborative experience of learning to garden and produce food creates transformational results. Students from all walks of life are inspired to take pride in something they are building and cultivating, opening a door through which additional learning can take place. And for students in high-need and low-status communities, learning to grow their own food can lead to personal and professional opportunities which can be nothing short of life changing. The Green Bronx Machine Classroom Curriculum helps educators reach students of all ability academically while also teaching personal responsibility, building entrepreneurial skills, promoting workforce development, and transforming lives, one lesson plan and seed at a time.
