A Pocketful of History

--Sherry L. Field and Linda D. Labbo
Read a biography. Then examine "pocket contents." In Lincoln's vest pocket? A draft for a speech, theater tickets, and a photograph of his family, among other items. "Artifacts" are suggested for the pockets of Benito Juarez (president of Mexico), Grandma Moses (artist), Mary McLeod Bethune (black educator), and others.

They replaced their water-guzzling grass front lawn with native, drought tolerant plants to save water, and also to create habitat for native pollinators like the Monarch butterfly, a species whose numbers have declined in recent years.
