Scarecrow Creations

By: kbarrett

[image] scarecrowApproximately 75 students in the Justin Elementary Green Team (gardening club) stayed after school to build scarecrow in our school garden.  Green Team grades 3-5 meet on Tuesdays once per month and Green Team K-2 students meet on Wednesdays once a month after school.

Students enjoyed bringing old clothes and hats to that help the scarecrow resemble a human figure. Student brought team jerseys, scarfs, jeans, belts, and yarn for hair.  The Green Team learned WHY gardens need scarecrows to scare birds away from a field where crops are growing.

There was no cost for this gardening experience the students used reusable materials such as; broom handles, straw, and recyled materials for the clothes and face. 

 

Making scarecrows is a great activity to do indoors if the weather is too wet or cold.
