The Garden Pizza Place

The Garden Pizza Place is one of my favorite interactives that relates specifically to curriculum topics. Designed by 4H, this site has kids experiment with different amounts of water, sunlight and fertilizer to grow a large plant.  This site is a perfect example of how easily we as SLPs can incorporate curriculum concepts, build language skills, and apply principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) all at the same time.

Language Lens:
  • The activity targets the abstract category of "plant needs" and causal and conditional sentence structures all over it!
  • I created a tracking sheet that kids could use to monitor the decisions that led to successful growth, providing further visual support for sentence formulation, as well as practice using a graphic organizer.
