A Classroom Project for Creative Recycling
Find these imaginative projects at the southeast corner of The Village Green, in front of Town Hall.
This annual project provides an opportunity for teachers and students from surrounding school systems to work in classrooms on a unique project as a collaborative group.
2012 Planet Project: Seeds
The objective of this year’s Planet Project is to consider the “seed” in all of it’s complexity. Seeds are fundamental for the development and reproduction of the plant life that we so often overlook. Many times we see these plants in their adult stage and forget that once the blossoming flower, and even the 300 year old White Oak was at one time only a tiny seed. This project will encourage students to explore the necessity of the seed, how they are dispersed, and how they differ from each other. There are many different types of seeds that vary in size, texture and color. During their research, students should keep in mind these variations as it will help aid brainstorming and ultimately shape the structure of their seed.
