Ecological Succession in a Garden

A science class was awarded a grant to start a garden at their middle school. The students chose an open area that was covered with grass. The first step in preparing to plant their garden was to remove the grass and till the soil. Once the area was cleared the students ordered their vegetable seeds. It took two weeks for the seeds to be delivered. After two weeks the students went out to their cleared area to plant their vegetable seeds. What do you think the students found when they visited their area after two weeks? Circle the answer that best matches your thinking. A. Nothing has changed. The area looks the same as it did after removing the grass. B. The grass has grown back so it must be removed again. C. Weeds have taken over the area and are thriving. Which statement do you agree with? Explain your thinking. Describe the reasoning you used for your answer.
