Truman’s Letter – April 2017

Hi, Kids!

I planted some tomato seeds yesterday. I love tomatoes! I’ve been learning about plants and what they do. I had no idea how much one plant has to do to stay healthy every day. The “Connections” section talks about how plants work and why having plants around is important for people.

Most plants use nutrients from the ground and sunlight to make food – but not all of them! Check out “Wildville” to learn more about carnivorous plants. Peter D’Amato makes a living
growing carnivorous plants. Read more about that in the “What’s It Like to Be …” section.
Plants make a lot of things easier for humans and provide us with many resources. It’s important to take care of them. What is something you can do to help nurture a plant today?
