Weeds are deep. Some are edible, have fancy nicknames, heal people, and many even have super powers. They really are amazing and interesting to learn about. This is a great learning activity and as a bonus - gets your yard spruced up!
- Suit kiddos up in a hat and gloves and send them out to the yard to pull some weeds.
- Weeds can be tricky to pull out because they often break at the stem. Roots are left behind to regenerate the plant. Use a garden shovel as needed with parental supervision.
- As you're pulling out, discuss the different types of weeds you see. What color are they? Do they have pokey bits? Can you see the seeds?
