Seeds to Success: Keep or Go

Students as the wildlife managers for their school. Due to recent student complaints, the school board has asked the wildlife management to determine if the “pest” in question is actually a pest at all. Through research, students must create an educational pamphlet for the board and weigh in on whether or not the insect should be kept or be removed from campus.


This lesson is intended to be used after completing the Bug Census, but can be done on its own. Teachers will need to identify potential insects in the garden so that they can be used as focus organisms for groups.
