FIELD TRIPS/SCIENCE
Visit to a Sod Farm

Submitted by: Michelle Eichhorn
From: Summerfield, NC
Date Submitted: February 7, 2002

Take a trip to a sod farm that sells various grasses. Have the students prepare questions for the "interview" and practice interviewing with a partner. Provide various types of grass seeds and have students plant several pots of grass. They can measure and track the amount of water used, amount of growth, hours of sunlight received, etc. This is a great way for students to learn about plants, disease, insects. If used in conjunction with grass growing activity, the students will enhance mathematical skills.
