3rd and 4th graders in Equinox House participated in an integrated project using math, science, and art skills. School gardener Mr. Andrew, enrichment teacher Ms. Milks, Art teacher Mrs. Baker, and TA Ms. Amanda have teamed to combine their specialties in this fun and unique project. Working in groups, students learned to make soap and created their own unique formula. They used a natural base (olive oil, shea butter, etc), garden herbs, and organic essential oils and learned what each herb and oil smells like and what benefits they have on the skin.
