A classroom program developed by the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) to engage and educate middle school students (grades 6-8) about green roofs and their environmental benefits.
Grades 5 and up
Students will use model buildings to compare runoff between a control building without a green roof and the experimental roof that has soil seeded with grass seed.
Students learn about the types of projects that landscape architects work on and then create their green roof using a shoebox.
Students explore whether rooftop gardens are a viable option for combating the urban heat island effect. Can rooftop gardens reduce the temperature inside and outside houses?
