After the quakes that destroyed much of Christchurch, many people came up with ideas to help bring the city back to life. This article recounts several of these ideas, many of which were small, temporary installations designed to raise people’s spirits. Note: Be sensitive to your students’ feelings as some may be experiencing difficulties post the earthquakes.

by Georgina Barnes
“Tons of Tomatoes” shows readers inside a hydroponics glasshouse, where Johnny’s Uncle Reupena grows tomatoes. Along with Johnny, readers learn about hydroponics. Students will be able to make connections and comparisons with what they already know about growing plants. The article is well illustrated with photographs and is supported by an interview with Uncle Reupena.
