HIGHLIGHTED PROJECT

Advocacy and Education Promoting Native Plants at Henry T. Gage Middle in Huntington Park!

A mixture of 147 6th, 7th and 8th graders from Henry T. Gage Middle came together in three sessions to learn about the benefits of native plants. Despite half of the students being designated “non-native English speakers,” students eagerly formed groups of six to seven members and put to practice their leadership skills by assigning each other tasks to ensure their project ran smoothly. Each team then designed an infographic pertinent to the topic of native plants meant to display factual information that would best educate unfamiliar peers on a campus that will soon be installing a native plants garden on their site! After presenting their beautifully illustrated posters in either English or Spanish, the students expressed gratitude and affection towards the coordinators leading the activity.
Yasmin I. stated, “son amables, tratan bien a los niños (you are kind, you treat the children well)”.
