Students were learning about how when plants start to seed and flower, that that is primarily when the aphids come in to feast. The plants are weak and the aphids know it- so it is important to remove those plants & the aphids to avoid total garden annihilation. They are incredibly creepy to look at under a magnifying glass, so it set the tone to draw stories about them and how we deal with these crafty bugs.
