As part of an interdisciplinary English and science project, several Bayport-Blue Point High School students completed a hands-on project this spring aimed at taking care of the Earth and their community.

The students, who are enrolled in classes taught by Stacie Pintar, Phil Turano, and Michele Cornwell, learned how to plant and transfer seeds in the high school’s green house and then put their new skills into action. They worked together to transfer dirt, plant seeds and care for the plants. The seeds planted included such items as kale, carrots, lettuce, radish, cucumber, cilantro, cantaloupe, basil, beets, bunching onions and sweet peppers.

Afterward, the students verbally reflected on the experience and engaged in a collaborative discussion about varying ways to take care of the environment.
