For the rest of the fall semester, the fourth and fifth graders will be implementing a social change campaign at Harvey Milk with the goal of reducing food waste. This was a topic that really energized them during our cooking unit, and we’re excited to see what they come up with. With Ms. Stuti in the classroom, students watched a video featuring activists and political theorists sharing their experiences working on some of the biggest social change campaigns of the past 50 years. Together as a class, they brainstormed who their allies will be, what tactics they can use, what anticipated obstacles they might find, and how they will measure their success.
Class ended in the garden, where students watered plants, took care of the chickens, and explored the dig zone. See you next week!
