Plymouth Elementary School 8th Grade Project

For the next several weeks, our class will research specific plants and gardening techniques and conduct an experiment to see what things make our plant grow the best.

This guide was developed by Mrs.Jung-Mathews (Mrs. J), a librarian at Plymouth State University, who is working with your teachers on this project.  The resources you find here are available during your research day visit to Lamson Library.  You will find sources on general gardening, as well as gardening in containers, because we will be using containers in our experiment. There are also sources from the Plymouth Regional High School Library listed here and links to PRHS and the town public library below.  

I'm always happy to answer any questions you have too!  My phone number is listed on this page, or you can use the EMAIL ME button to send me a note.

Let's have fun making our plants grow!
