Students at Timber Ridge school presented information regarding different essential oils. Photos represent the reports on Rosemary and Sweet Orange.

At the beginning of the year, students smelled each oil (8 different kinds) and then hypothesized different information – what plant it came from, what region it’s from, what is it used for, and what mood it evoked. Students choose an oil, did research and then presented their findings. They compared their research to the prior hypotheses.

Students worked in class and utilized technology and readings to do their research. Now that the research phase is complete, they will be using each oil to make stress-relief essential oil play dough in class!
