This week the students in the B.R.I.D.G.E.S. class visited Home Depot for a little Spring Gardening. Prior to the trip, students learned about the variety of plants you can buy and which plants are compatible with each other. For example, some plants need full sun, partial sun and bright light, while other plants need more water or less water.


We also reviewed budgeting and adding tax. Students were given a budget of $20.00 to spend on a pot and minimum of 2 plants. Students had a great time choosing their pots and plants. Some students had to use their problem-solving skills when they realized the plants they chose would not fit in the pot.


After a successful trip to Home Depot, we stopped off at Anthony’s Coal Fire Pizza to pick up a 1/2 dozen pizzas for lunch back at school. Next week we will plant our plants and watch them grow. Stay tuned!
