Speed Reading — Cutting the Grass - Level 0 — 300 wpm

Now do this put-the-text-back-together activity.

This is the text (if you need help).

A charity called Plantlife wants us not to cut our grass. It is a project called "No Mow May". When we cut the grass, there are fewer flowers and insects. Not cutting the grass helps "bees, butterflies, wildlife and us". Bees are important because they pollinate flowers.

Plantlife said wild lawns are "biodiversity hotspots". They can have 250 kinds of plants, including wild strawberry. One gardener said wild gardens bring joy. He said not mowing the lawn lets us "reconnect with the natural world". Plantlife agreed. It said a wild garden "makes you feel like you're somewhere tropical".
