Raising tilapia in the basement, making soap in a classroom
Baltimore Brew
The students were, in a way, selling the West Baltimore school as well.

Susan Grigsby‘s insight:

I love this story and I love the picture of the smiling kids. This is real world learning (IMHO) at its best. Kids are learning about science and economics through their fish farm. They’re learning about plants and chemicals with their soap creations. They’re directly connected to the products they need in the classroom because they created the materials that bought those products. Now, we don’t all have to raise fish or make soap but… How can libraries (and other public schools) take this idea and make learning happen?
