    exercise for the kids to kick off the project.  I just got an email from one of our math teachers that it would coincide with the kids doing scale diagrams.  They could create a scale diagram of their yard or nearby place where there some dirt to propose as a place to plant.

      My 9th grade science class will be studying the human impacts on biodiversity. I will take your idea and assign them the reading. Then they will be invested in growing the milkweed and nectar flowers (along with my greenhouse class). This is such a wonderful educational opportunity. Let's hope the next generation can repair some of the damage humans have caused to the planet.
