Growing Grass?

Charley L, Carla K

This fall we observed lots of leaves on the ground.  This made us wonder if grass grows better with a certain type of organic material.  To test our question we set-up plastic cups with different types of organic material in them and planted grass to see which would grow better.  

Mysterious Crickets

Grace V, Olivia I

This fall we observed crickets in our terrarium.  We noticed at first they were very active, but we didn’t hear them chirp.  This made us wonder if we could get them to chirp.  We set-up three bins that had different amounts of light and collected data.
