Mindfulness Practices for Science Observation Skills

Online Feb-May 2022. Focused on Designing, Planting, and Caring for a Perennial Herb Garden in Schools & daily mindfulness skills. NGSS & SEL Standards aligned. The Tea Project is a standards-based initiative in which elementary school children experience the plant cycle, weather, and seasons, and develop self-care, empathy, body awareness, mindfulness, and science observation skills through the lens of growing and preparing perennial healing herbs. 

In this course, we build and design a perennial herb garden for the school. This garden will grow to supply your classroom with a monthly supply of herbal teas throughout the school year so you can have a locally harvested tea corner to supply your daily cup of tea and mindfulness practices.

The following topics are introduced and explored:

  • Design a tea garden
  • Plant and care for perennial herbs
  • Curriculum Topics: 
  • Seeds 
  • Growth 
  • Scientific Observation Skills
  • Spring Ephemeral Woodland Flowers
