a teacher's tip worth repeating! Ever get contrasting results from counting
your tulips? This is the perfect time to introduce grids as a way to accurately
measure data. Use string to make a grid across our garden and each group
take one or two sections to scout out emerged tulips. It is far easier to
be exact in a smaller, well-defined area. Each group can check their own
area daily and update their count!
