Wild Strawberries and Science Project Memories

Good morning,

I remember these wild strawberries in the grass when I was a child.  They remind me of a science project that was great fun.
I'm guessing I was in the Fifth or Sixth Grade when the science teacher gave us a project to mark off a one foot square of our yard, then record what happened there daily. 

I remember looking forward to going out every afternoon after school and writing down these important things which included:  an ant walking across the area, a wild strawberry blooming, raindrops on the grass, etc.  It was a brilliant assignment from our science teacher to help us become aware of the small things that happen right under our noses.

What was your favorite science project?

Teachers like this fire the immagination. In Einstein's words, “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions.”
