Outdoor Learning and School Garden Science
Guided garden instruction and self-directed outdoor exploration are key components to eco-literacy. Environmentally literate students understand that it is their actions and choices that create sustainable, prosperous, and equitable communities. Through scientific inquiry, critical thinking, and environmental know-how, our hope is that all AUSD students will graduate prepared to solve the world’s problems. Virtual garden-science lessons are listed on our lesson catalog and accessed through the grade-level links below.
For the 2021-2022 school year, we will be returning to in-person garden-science instruction.
