El Sol Academy
With a primary focus on science education, the 9th graders at Sage Hill facilitate a multi-dimensional, cross-curricular approach to teaching the 3rd graders from El Sol and EB Cole about healthy lifestyles. Using Sage Hill’s Teaching and Learning Garden, students focus on key concepts such as organic farming, sustainability, renewable resources, soil chemistry and composition, animals and farming, physical education, and food awareness. Not only do the 9th grade students participate in the year-long service learning project, but what they share with the 3rd graders directly ties into their science curriculum at school.
