Mr. Sarda’s Kindergardeners discovered the wonder of weeds in the garden, with the help of some of Mr. Swearingen’s High Tech Middle Media Arts 6th graders. First they heard a page of garden teacher Mrs. Elliott’s upcoming book, “Weeds Find a Way,” which is under contract with Beach Lane Books/Simon and Schuster for publication sometime after 2011, and learned how weeds have cleverly adapted to survive in our garden. Then students went out into the garden to see how weeds have found ways to hog water, spread their seeds, avoid being pulled out. They pulled some weeds, clipped a few others, and brought them inside to study and draw. They discovered many of the weeds were different types of grass.
