The Problem

My 2nd graders will be studying plants. We just Skyped with a scientist whose specialty is plants. Yhrough her stude ts learned about the importance of milkweed, and other plants, on butterflies. We will be planting milkweek seeds, as well as other plants that support butterflies. Plants will be incorporated into our school garden as well as being sent home with students, along with a butterfly bush.

Our Plan

Students want to support butterflies, especially Monarchs. They will plant a variety of milkweed seeds, as well as butterfly bushes, which they will nurture until it is time to add them to our school garden and our home gardens.
