Journey South News

  • Tulip Garden Update: December 10, 1999
    The darkest days of the year are upon us, and the coldest days of winter are still ahead. But 243 gardens are now safely tucked into the ground, and students across the north are already waiting for spring. What do you
    suppose will happen underground, when air temperatures drop lower and lower?
  • Tulip Garden Update: November 12, 1999
    128 new tulip gardens have been planted since the last update! Can you see any geographic pattern as you map these gardens? Also, a reminder to warmer region gardens--don't forget to report your future gardens now.
  • Tulip Garden Update: October 15, 1999
    The first thirty-three Journey North gardens have now been planted! Make a map with today's data, then consider if planting date might affect the tulip's growth next spring. What would happen if you planted your tulips upside down, anyway? (And other ideas for experiments.)
  • Tulip Garden Update: September 17, 1999
    Your tulip bulbs have arrived and you're about to bury them underground. But before you take your last look, maybe there are some important things you should know about them....And after you plant your garden this fall, don't forget to report to Journey North so your site will appear on next month's map!
