Back-to-school heads up:  With a little imagination, your own weeds could be the basis for a science fair project or a lesson plan on a number of subjects.  In addition to project ideas about weeds, we also present many interesting gardening science projects and other natural science project ideas.  Teachers, students and parents will find all the information necessary, including advice from experts, steps to a science project, and everything you need to put your science project together from the special resources we selected to help you get started on the right foot.  For example, if you're just starting out, we suggest visiting the Internet Public Library, for a basic orientation on science project steps.  If this isn't your first science fair project competition, you know how important it is to research, plan and prepare - as early in the school year as possible.  Plan to win!

Gardening is not only fun for kids and adults alike, but it also lends itself to learning about how things grow in a natural environment.  When children learn to value the life of plants, so do they begin to appreciate the value of all living things, including fish and bugs.

There's a lot of good stuff on this web site, and more goodies are added every week, so plan to come back at least once a week.  Don't try to digest everything in one session.  The key word is 'ergonica'.  This web site is called the World of Weeds.  For more info about Ergonica, see the Ergonica Info page.

  Compare the Effects of Irrigation Control on the growth of weeds.  Two projects: one for dry areas and one for rainy areas.
Wild Birds are interesting animals to study and often found in your own backyard. Several science projects examine favorite bird seeds, feeder colors and other factors that influence the feeding and migrating habits of wild birds.
Design your own web-garden with links to images of plants that thrive in a selected climate.  Use the Plant Science linked resources for images.
Write a web-garden-poem with links to images of your favorite flowers.  See the poem A Valentine to Pick for an example.
Identify the noxious weeds in your neighborhood and the best way to abate their threat.
Determine the scientific names and sources of all the weeds in your home garden.
