My students always enjoyed this lab because it requires them to work together to care for their grass while having fun taking measurements, collecting and keeping data and graphing. A great extension was talking about the limiting factors preventing the grass from growing a mile high! I have even used a similar project in my Algebra classes to teach plotting, graphing, lines of fit and extrapolation.
