Beggar-ticks
By Seamus Brown
Kindergarten, Chinook Spirit Children’s Academy
• Beggar-ticks are a native plant. That means it’s from here.
• Seeds stick to clothes and animal fur. That is how the seed spreads. It will fall off and grow.
• It is used for medicine to help people not get sick.
• It starts growing green. When it dies, it turns purple.
