Cynthia Gingold

Through “Blooming Geniuses” Dr. Gingold and Ms. Lawson integrate arts, reading, and writing into the science curriculum. Students use nonfiction texts to learn about plants and develop a readers’ theater presentation for parents. Applying this knowledge, students create visual representations of plants with paper mache and read and write poetry about plant growth. In addition to visiting nature centers and botanical gardens, students use a greenhouse in the classroom to explore plant growth and the scientific process.
