Outside my workspace

Outside my classroom there is a green house. It is pretty old now. We used to have an agriculture program at our school. 
This year I started to try and use the space. I do not like that the space is not being used. 
We started to plant what I thought could be bonsai plants. We used cuttings from plants which are around the school grounds. 

Check out this great work of art by Omar Sangiovanni at Saatchi Art

The kids enjoy it. They go out every class to visit their plants and are happy when they see their plants grow a new leaf or something like it. I don't know if the lesson in the end will be successful but my students have so far enjoyed their experience.
