A story about a girl who decides to do an experiment for her science project by sending various planted vegetables to the Earth's atmosphere to see how well they would grow. A bunch of different vegetables begin to fall back down to the surface in different parts of the world, but they all are enormous in size. A gigantic broccoli ends up falling in her backyard and she becomes disappointed because she didn't send a broccoli plant to the Earth's atmosphere. As she begins to wonder what happened to her vegetables and where those falling to Earth came from it shows an alien spacecraft hovering above Earth that has lost all of it's food supply. Just when they think they will starve, the girls plants begin to float by their spacecraft fully bloomed and ripe. A very cute story to open up science experiments in the classroom dealing with growing different types of plants. Each student could grow their own and come up with a plan to take care of plant. Would it grow better with a lot of sunlight? How much water does it need? A good research activity. It also gives way to talk a little bit about geography and what climate different plants/food need to grow.
