Overland Elementary Loves Gardening!

Each classroom has a designated gardening bed. Parents and teachers work together to lead lessons that enable students to plant, grow, harvest and maintain gardens. Sensory activities in outdoor classroom setting provide hands-on science exposure during gardening lessons. Landscaped plots throughout the campus provide additional lesson resources: butterfly habitats, lavender beds, tree yards, succulents, and a beautifully landscaped 'Discovery Garden' provide sensory hands-on science exploration in an outdoor classroom environment.
