During the research I chose to do those thirty inches as my benchmark. This meant that if an animal was below the benchmark I would consider that as a small animal and if it were over the thirty inch benchmark it would be considered large and mark it as large.             During the research it was very much one sided. I realized that most animals that were killed large were usually way over thirty inches except for the beaver. As I said earlier the information was one sided so that most all the large animals were about five in total. Everything else was mostly squirrels and uncommon birds. There were many things that could of effected the data. It may be where we live to depend on the size of the animals killed. You would have to make the benchmark smaller to have a serious set of data to compare. My data was off track. Through this whole project I wasn’t aware how many small animals were involved in the road kill. I started to notice doing this variable wasn’t very good. It was mostly putting tallies for the small animals. I wish I redone the information and put the thirty inches down to maybe twenty or twenty five inches. Article posted May 28, 2009 at 10:10 AM GMT-5 • comment • Reads 351

It was cool to learn all the new animals sizes and also i learned about 5 different animals that lived around our area. I also learned how big a raccoon was, also a squirel can grow to be over 20 inches long! Article posted May 26, 2009 at 08:50 AM GMT-5 • comment • Reads 298

It involves a community garden in Cleveland, Ohio. The garden was not always a garden, it used to a garbage dump before a young girl began to secretly plant peas. One day a girl caught a glimpse of her planting the peas in the ground. As she was watching through the window she was very curious and ran down there to make sure she wasn’t planting anything illegal. As she went down she dug up the ground and before she knew it she ruined was the little girl had made. So trying to pull herself together she rushed to put the plant back together with no luck. Seed Folks is all about bringing a broken down community into a working together community. One of my seed packets is for a Seed Folk named Sam. Sam is a very involved and friendly type of person. He is always willing to put himself in front to help out whomever even if it is a complete stranger. He decided to make pumpkins because he would make good money because of carving for Halloween. I think I made a nice choice for this seed packet. For my last seed packet I did my little dog Franklin. I chose to make him a Venus fly trap because he likes to nip people who are playing with him. He is a dog who loves to be played around with and be around with. He isn’t a dog who runs away he is always staying by your side if you make his day. This is the reason why I chose to do Frank.
