Grass grows on all continents, including Antarctica, and it makes up approximately 26% of the plant life on Earth. We will be make our own grass pets (like chia pets but with grass!) and learn about this widespread and ecologically important plant!
Preparation: A plastic container from recycling (bottom of a large pop bottle is recommended), soil, seeds (grass is preferred, chia seeds or birdseed will also work), craft supplies (i.e. googly eyes, pompoms, stickers, glue, scissors, etc.), old nylons or socks, elastic bands (or string or yarn)
Expert: Sara Stricker is a plant scientist and the Communications and Outreach Coordinator at The Guelph Turfgrass Institute.
