Indoor plants can be used to enhance school staff rooms, school lobbies and school offices. Indoor plants have many benefits and some research about the benefits of plants in classrooms has been done over the years to show these benefits.
Plants in the classroom can improve the visual appearance of a learning area. But not only do indoor plants look good, they have many powerful benefits too.
The classroom environment is an important factor in the way a student can learn. Over the years, studies have found that bringing plants indoors can play a vital role in the learning and academic performance of students. They can also improve the mood, behaviour and health of students.
Plants are beneficial in absorbing acoustic noise in the classroom. Excess noise can increase levels of stress and anxiety for students and teachers. Stress can have a negative impact on a person’s health and wellbeing. Stress also affects the learning ability of students. Headaches, general aches and pains and tiredness can all stem from stress and anxiety.
Living plants in classrooms can provide an opportunity for students to learn about the vital role that nature plays for human beings. As an example, students can receive lessons, worksheets or activities based on the process of photosynthesis.
