Next you will make a circle around you by, your partner holding one end of the string with the chalk and you hold the other end so its tight. Now your partner will scrape the chalk on the pavement going around you until they meet the starting point.If you want to make sure you are accurate with your calculations you can lay down in your circle because it should be as long as you. Then you shall have the length of your roots.After that the gods of nature would give you water and nutrients and you could only grab the water or nutrients in your circle.
The wind was one of the biggest problems for most people because it blows all of the nutrients and water away. Also if a bug is in your circle you have to pick it up and 1 bug burrows down 2 lines in your tree cookie. Then you count up all of the nutrients and water. If you have 3 or more of each, you have superior growth. If you have 1 or 2 of water or nutrients you would have moderate growth and if you
had 0 you would have poor growth. Then we have to determine what growth we hadwould have and add a new layer on to
our tree cookie. That was a lovely day in 5th grade.
