Brookings-Harbor School Gardens
Fall 2020 Garden Unit Overview
Lesson: Agricultural Inventors
Lesson: Community Supported Agriculture
Hello, and welcome to November!
I want to introduce you to your November Subscription Box from Oregon Ag in the Classroom. Each month this school year your student(s) will have the opportunity to learn about a different agricultural crop/product grown in Oregon. This months’ lesson is all about cranberries.
Inside your kit are directions on how to access the videos that go along with this lesson. One that talks about buoyancy called Why Do Ships Float? can be found by typing in this link: https://youtu.be/CvWrkxzCiaY
The second video is called Cranberry, How does it grow?
The video can be found by typing in this link: https://youtu.be/XZPXQ7nw_9Y
In your lesson kit are detailed lesson directions and a marble for experiment purposes. Be sure to save one cranberry from your bag for the buoyancy lesson.
Also in your November kit is a bag with 2 cups of fresh organic cranberries donated by Cape Blanco Cranberries in Bandon. We’ve provided you with a recipe in the enclosed packet so you can make your own cranberries sauce at home.
We hope you and your students enjoy this lesson and work together to make the cranberry sauce. Any questions can be directed to the Brookings Harbor School District garden education staff at [email protected].
We want to send a BIG shout out to Oregon Ag in the Classroom, Cape Blanco Cranberries, BHSD Food Service, and the students who helped assembly your kits. Enjoy!!
Let's learn about Mint!
Welcome to December’s Farm to School activities provided by Oregon Ag in the Classroom. This month we will be learning about Mint production in Oregon. Did you know Oregon produces 33% of the peppermint grown in the US? We have informative videos for you to watch (links listed below) and two worksheets to fill out. Finally we’ve provided you with 5 different mint candies to complete these activities. When you complete the activities you may taste the mint candies and compare and contrast their characteristics.
