How much Fence do We Need for Our School Garden?

The Fence that could go around the Garden

Last year the 5th graders had planted sunflowers when the teachers came back from summer break the mowers had mowed down.

We are going to find a cheap fence that can last a long time and that can let the mowers and other people  know that there is something growing around the garden.

About the Fence
The fence costs $16.98 for 20 feet of 14 inch tall vinyl coated scroll top border. There is about 170 liner feet needed to fence the garden. We are going to need a total of 9 rolls of the 20ftx14 in. vinyl coated scroll top border fencing. That's going to cost about $152.82 plus tax. ($16.98 x 9)  You will have enough fencing for the garden and are going to have some extra for repairs.
The fencing I found was at The Home Depot. The fencing goes 1 1/2 feet out and around from the existing fence and the sunflowers will be planted  in between the fences.

About the Garden
Go here to see a easy picture of what the East Elementary Garden looks like. The garden is taken care of by Mrs. Vander Velde the 5th grade teacher. She takes very good care of the garden.

Flowering Plants

1. How do flowering plants reproduce?
2. What is the purpose of a seed's covering?
3. Where are flowering plants found?
4. How do animals interact with flowering plants to help them reproduce?

For a new seed to form, pollen from the stamen has to get carried to the pistil in another plant. The bee brushes against the anther. The anther gets a dusting of pollen on another flower the bee leaves some pollen, a pollen gran is collected by the pistil. The pollen gran goes down a thin tub to get to the ovule. Fertilization happens when the male pollen and female ovule combine the fertilized ovule becomes a seed and the seed becomes a new plant.

Sailing Home on the Pink Fluffy Unicorn

Dear Journal,
  The captain finally decided that it was time to stop looking for gold and start heading home. We all where relieved he finally turned back. But before we can we have to do and 4 supplies check. We discovered weevils is our biscuits.  We started to realize that people started to steel are supplies Jack started to get ferrous, he said "Who is steeling the supplies it's going to be harder for me to steer the ship, we didn't have good supplies as it is." We all looked at each other, but no one said that they did it. Hours later someone I heard. LAAAAND HO! We all ran to the front of the ship. Was it home? Was it another land we can clam? We got closer he seen people and we heard people cheering. We were all happy we almost cried. Once we got closer to land we finally seen all the people where there when we left. Once we got to a stop some people came on to our ship and they went to see what it would be like.
  We were all happy that non of us got dysentery, typhus, or scurvy. We were on sea for 10 weeks. We all were happy to be alive. Because all we heard coming hear, with everyone dying. We showed every one what we found. After that we showed them the "Indians" so they would believe us that we were in India.
