This picture shows Poison Ivy in a vine. Students were very interested to learn about identifying this dangerous plant!
In this session, students learned that it takes 8 gallons of water per day to brush our teeth! We were amazed!
Students played a game to demonstrate how pesticides can affect the food chain especially animals at the top. Ospreys were unable to hatch because the mother’s eggs were deficient in Calcium due to DDT in the food chain. Michigan’s Osprey chick population was wiped out and the species became endangered. They are now on their way back.
