On the Go Lessons
Cover Crop Monsters -- On the Go Lesson
For this activity you will create a cover crop monster, which will help you see how quickly grasses germinate and provide ground cover.
These To Go Lessons can be used to create a "grab and go" style activity with supplies included. Add your local contact information, print, and cut each sheet in half. The left side can be used on the outside of the paper bag or box to identify the activity, and the right side can be placed in the package as an instruction sheet.
We recommend 1 teaspoon of seed and approximately 1 cup of soil per kit. You can adjust this based on the number of kits you need and the containers you are able to source.
Youth-serving organizations in Iowa are encouraged to contact their local
Iowa State University Extension and Outreach county office
to explore partnership opportunities in administering this program.
