Day 15 

On September 11th, 2017 we started working on slides about poisons plants such as poison ivy, poison oak, and poison sumac. In the slides we talked about the plants, the symptoms that occur if you touch these plants, and how to treat these symptoms. In each group there were 8 people each person was given a slide about one of the topics and had to look it up and create a slide about their topics. We were told to be able to present our slides as a group by Wednesday. We also watered and checked on our plants.

Day 4 



On May 18, 2017, we learned a lesson which consisted of a group of five students cutting out a six foot paper water droplet to explain how the water cycle works together. First, the students chose a team leader and then the teachers explained the instructions and the strategies for the activity. The goal of the activity was for the four students to stand on the water droplet without touching the concrete. The students had to completely flip over the water droplet while standing on it. After the water droplet was flipped over, the students had to identify the words on the back: percolation, condensation, transpiration, and precipitation. The activity represented many things such as: working together as a team, the way the water cycle works together, and the art of communication. Also, we worked on the compost bin for the greenhouse.

Day 10 
September 5th, 2017, we planted radishes, cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes, jalapenos, and cilantro. The student also started to record the data of these plants in their horticulture journals. Everyone helped and worked together. And everyone has a job. Whether it'd be watering, moving bags of soil, mixing soil, or planting seeds, we were all moving and helping.

Day 13 
On September 9th, 2017 we watered our plants and moved the plants to a different area. We also talked about our new fundraiser. In which, we are partnering with the UNITED STATES WORLD WAR ONE CENTENNIAL COMMISSION. The way the fundraiser works, is we sell poppy seeds for $2 a piece. One dollar goes to helping build the National World War 1 Memorial in Washington D.C.  The other dollar goes to our JMG class.

Day 12 
On September 7th, 2017, we had a guest speaker come and tell us about succulents. We learned about different kinds, how to grow them, how to plant them, what tools are used to grow them, and more. Our eighth graders passed around and studied different succulents while the speaker explained a little bit about each one. The students showed great interest in these kinds of plants and had multiple questions. All of which, the guest speaker answered in detail so that everyone understood. We were taught about different ways to grow them to where they would turn different colors or grow to certain sizes.

Day 11 
On September 6th, 2017, we continued our work from the previous day. We split into two groups. Group 1 went up to the green house and put gardening boxes together. Meanwhile, Group 2 was planting in cartons and large pots. Halfway though the class period, we switched and continued where the previous groups had ended.
