Whitehall High School
Mead and Sean Cronan taught Whitehall 4th graders. Mrs. Dean was nice
enough to let us come in and teach her 4th grade class about weeds.
what we taught them: We talked
about weeds and what they do that are harmful. We
asked if they knew what a weed was. Then we taught them ways to kill
weeds. The two weeds that we showed and described to them were leafy
spurge and Dalmatian toad flax. We gave them pictures of each weed to
color. In the end we gave them a quiz and overall they understood why
weeds are bad and what they do.
are a few pictures from Mrs. Deans class. Taught by WHS students Dylen
Mead and Sean Cronan.
place went to Brock Johnson
Second place went to Kiley Staples
Third place went to Garret Briggs.
The above pictures were chosen by
Dylen Mead and Sean Cronan.
Curriculum: What we did first was
find pictures for the students to color from http://www.nps.gov/plants/color/northwest/com.htm
which is a great web site for pictures of weeds. Then we used
spurge and Dalmatian toad flax and had Mrs. Dean's class color them.
Thank You! Mrs. Dean!! :-)
