EXTRA CREDIT PROJECT: HERBAL TRADING CARDS

When you start collecting your Herbal Trading Cards, explore each new herb on your cards. See if you can find it growing in your area. Try using it as medicine. Make up your own story or song about the new herb. In this way, you will expand the collection of herbs you know and can use.
