It offers practical lessons, resources, and guidance for individuals at all skill levels, fostering a deeper understanding of the connections between food, gardening, and social change. Each unit contains five to seven ready-made lessons where students work together to explore growing food, relationships with the land and food system, and practice leadership in their communities. Activities in the fully downloadable curriculum connect to New York State Learning Standards and 4-H life skills.

tag(s): plants (140), social and emotional learning (74), sustainability (44)

Add this project or one of the units to your arsenal of tools for teaching the Sustainable Development Goals explained in World's Largest Lesson , reviewed here. Show the introduction to S.O.W. on your interactive whiteboard to the class focusing on the links for Seeds for Supper (a beginning gardening experience). If you don't have a school garden, there is a link to Gardening in Containers in Seeds for Supper, which would be easier and more affordable for a classroom or individual students. As you and your class move through the unit, have students use Wakelet, reviewed here to keep a list of notes and links. Be sure to include images of your before and after garden. As a culminating project, use Flip, reviewed here to have students describe the most useful information they learned from this unit. Ask them to comment on their peer's responses.

ChatGPT is an artificial intelligence chatbot that allows members to have conversations that answer questions and assist with many tasks. Create an account using your email address, Google, or Microsoft account. Use the "Send a Message" box at the bottom of the page to type a chat request and click send. ChatGPT provides a response based on your input. Use the option to regenerate the request if you want to see different answers, or use the chat box to type in clarifying information to improve the response. Find your previous chats on the left side of the screen, and click any chat to edit, view, delete, or obtain a link to share. Always verify any information provided by ChatGPT before using it. This is an evolving tool, and many features change (or upgrade) on a regular basis.

tag(s): artificial intelligence (79), chat (39), search strategies (23)

In the Classroom

Use ChatGPT to increase your productivity and as a resource for finding classroom resources. For example, use the chat to find activities accompanying your current book study. An example question might be, "What are some activities to add to our study of Charlotte's Web in third grade?" Use a clarifying question to select one of the provided activities and ask for free online resources that support the provided response. This example includes several clarifying questions that provide additional ideas for books and activities to accompany Charlotte's. Ask ChatGPT to differentiate activities for students who need extra support or for those that need enrichment activities. Another use for ChatGPT is to write Student of the Week paragraphs; ask ChatGPT to write a paragraph including the student's name and accomplishments and revise the section to fit your needs.

Water, Water Everywhere - is one of the TeachersFirst Help! I lost my media/library specialist collection found here. This article features topics and resources that explain how little fresh water there is in the world. The Introduction and Background Knowledge give facts about fresh water and explain the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) for accessible, clean water. The Activities section suggests several books to read that range from ages PreK to grade 12, with seven videos from which to choose. One activity suggests students practice walking with jugs of water balancing on their heads. Another activity is to simulate cleaning up bird feathers after an oil spill. Additional resources and activities are suggested in the Extensions section.

tag(s): pollution (49), sustainability (44), water (101)

In the Classroom

Include books from this list on your recommended books list to share with students. Engage students further by completing the activity about walking with a water container on their heads. Use Flip, reviewed here to have students relate how it felt to balance and carry the water and how they could make getting water easier for the community. Ask students to listen to and comment on other classmates' descriptions and ideas. Possibly work with the physical education teacher to teach students how to balance a jug on their head and walk at the same time.

In the Classroom

Create curiosity, activate prior knowledge, and generate discussion before introducing a new topic or concept; create a poll with questions about the upcoming lesson. Display the poll on a screen or ask students to access it on their devices. Quickly generate formative assessment surveys throughout a lesson or unit. Students can also engage in peer discussion by comparing their responses and explaining their reasoning. Promote critical thinking, collaboration, and applying knowledge beyond the classroom by using Letsfind to design collaborative projects or opinion polls. Divide students into groups and assign them a real-world problem or scenario related to the topic. Each group can create a poll to gather opinions or propose solutions. They can then share their suveys with other groups, gather responses, and analyze the data collected.

In the Classroom

Emojis are entertaining and a bit whimsical; however, they also help provide visual cues for assignments, feedback, and clarity to classroom routines. For example, use emojis as part of exit tickets for students to give feedback on their understanding of the day's lessons. Ask students to use emojis to create categories when researching information. Retell stories using emojis to represent characters or the sequence of events.
