BACKYARD BUZZ


MODULE 2: BACKYARD BUZZ

Complete this module to learn more about the natural environment and how we live and learn in it! This module is expected to take around 2 hours to complete. 

Plants and nature are important to us because we need our environment and the resources that it provides to survive. We use plants to help build and heat our homes and to produce the air we breathe and the food we eat!
