The SOLAR Preparatory School for Girls has turned lemons into a Project Based Learning experience.
All students participated in the longterm project that taught them a variety of skills.
The students helped build and paint lemonade stands and developed advertisements and sales techniques. Students also read fiction texts in which the main characters are selling lemonade.
Parent volunteers helped the girls build the stands form scratch.
SOLAR Prep is a Transformation School and part of the Public School Choice Imitative that opened in August 2016. SOLAR Prep also uses a blended learning model, in which lessons are taught in small groups. Students learn from the teacher and each other.
SOLAR Prep is an open-enrollment campus with scholars from across the city. To help girls build a strong foundation of Social and Emotional Learning, Solar Prep centers its work around a set of values called the “Solar Six.”
