The idea for this project came from memories I have of going into the woods with my children when they were young and gathering moss and little plants to make terrariums in small plastic fish tanks. We would then bury a bowl of water in the middle for a pond. It's a fun project for children and they can add "elves" and "fairy" dolls to make the scene complete. It is a creative way to teach them to appreciate the tiny growing world that we sometimes fail to notice.
