Gardening with Kids

Many children like being outside playing in the soil and they like doing things with their parents. By combining these two activities you can encourage your kids to grow their own flowers and vegetables. Gardening together may help your kids develop an appreciation for nature and encourage them to be healthier eaters. You may want to check out your child’s school to see if it has a gardening program. Visit these resources to learn more about gardening with kids:

What is the impact of cell phones on our society?

What is the impact of cell phones on our society? Check out this latest post from .gov:

“What impact have cell phones had on us socially? Find out by watching this live webcast, on June 4th, at 11:00 am and 2:00 pm EST.…

Students will meet Joshua Bell, a cultural anthropologist at the National Museum of Natural History, and explore with him the natural history of cellphones. He will take your class on a journey along a supply chain, from the mines that produce cell phone minerals to the millions of discarded cellphones. Joshua will help students reflect on the emerging social implications of a cell phone being one of our most utilized possessions.”
