Flowers, beneficial insects, & companion planting

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Along with the ladybug craziness (see below), we procured an abundance of beautiful flower starts- marigold, snap dragons, and dahlias. We talked about the importance of attracting beneficial insects and pollinators. Every student in the 1st and 2nd grade got to plant a flower. We had lots of help from volunteer Andrea, whose positive energy helped her float around the kids as they planted and got excited about flowers.
