About this Grantee

Ms. Bernato, Ms. Birk, and their third and fourth grade students create a native California plant garden and butterfly habitat. Students design and construct the garden and raise butterflies from larvae to learn about lifecycles. To understand the scientific process, students conduct inquiry-based experiments with plants, seeds, and bulbs. Building vocabulary skills, students record their work in electronic journals and study Native American uses of plants.
