FTPPO- Student Committee

34 students in grades Kindergarten - 5th participated in this committee! They worked in teams of 4 with a student leader. So far, they have:

  • Visited the outdoor planters
  • Learned about perennials vs annual, native vs exotic, and the many ways native perennials help the local fauna
  • Researched wildflowers in a variety of books
  • Wrote information on a chart with names and STEM connections
  • Confirmed Plants of the Southwest sell the wildflowers in either plants or seeds
  • Share their findings with other teams
  • Completed Field Work at Plants of the Southwest- purchased native, perennial wildflowers to plant in the planters
  • Planted & watered the wildflowers in four of the planters and in the Children's Garden!

Next step, watching them grow!
