Organisms in the garden

1st grade is studying organisms for their SPS science unit & we went on an organism hunt throughout the garden. Spiderwebs are of particular interest because they are prevalent this time of the year (and super awesome to look at). Just grab a simple plant mister water bottle, spritz the webs, and they come alive.

The scientific drawings they did turned out fabulous.

They found many other organisms in the garden: worms, centipedes, millipedes, potato bugs, beetles, flies, spit bugs, stink bugs, & of course our mortal enemy aphids!

    Gardens here (as opposed to my MD home) yield a dirth of facinating bugs and growths and diseases. It has been more fun (attitude choice) to study it all than fight it.
