Classroom Sessions

Our youth-led classroom sessions are designed for 4-7th graders and cover topics including local biodiversity threats, effects of carbon dioxide emissions, and the science behind Super Plants. We include interactive discussions and activities throughout. Students grow and track their own Super Plants after planting them in their school, home, or community garden. Thanks to the OurEcho Challenge through EarthEcho all sessions and materials are free.     

Session Materials:

  • 20 California Melicgrass seeds per student.

  • Student and teacher guides with a letter to students about Project Super Plants and the urgency of taking action, information about threats to biodiversity and the effects of CO2 emissions, the science behind Super Plants, and extension activities.

  • Planting instructions for growing Super Plants.

  • Tracking forms for students to record the growth of their plants.

  • Access to both hardcopy and online versions of materials.

Our classroom sessions are around 45 minutes long. Students then water and track their plant until it is full-grown (about one month).

Our classroom sessions provide hands-on activities, real-life examples, and a simple way for peers to make a difference.

Partnerships

We hope to partner with classrooms and organizations to bring Project Super Plants into schools as well as communities more broadly. In the past, we have run booths at the North Bay Science Discovery Day and the Bay Area Youth Climate Summit and partnered with Daily Acts to hold a joint webinar. We are open to spreading our project in many different ways whether presenting in classrooms or at conferences, conducting Super Plant plantings, tying into organization events, etc.

If you are interested in partnering, please reach out to us at projectsuperplants@gmail.com.
