The "Exchange" section contains letters from readers that share teaching ideas, information about local projects, and responses to prior issues. The "Resources" section reviews instructional materials and provides information about resource availability. Among the topics discussed in these issues are: the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) SEEDS project, peanuts, lunar harvest, hydroponics, biospheres, energy, ponds, ladybugs, herbs, worms, transplanting, mathematical problem solving; bulbs, global gardening, butterflies, compost, and wildflowers.
