Science has become everyone’s favorite subject. In addition to studying outer space at co-op on Mondays,
…we’ve done some fun science work and experiments at home.
We learned about how plants send water to their leaves. Then we demonstrated it using blue food dye, water, and some celery stalks. The kids had fun checking the celery every 15 minutes to see whether it had changed. After the leaves turned blue, the kids cut the celery stalks to see the blue capillaries. Laine displays the end of hers…
We read about leaves and how they work and then collected leaves from various plants around our yard. We got a fairly impressive collection of them and used them to do leaf rubbings.
We all had quite a bit of fun with that one. The ones that involve going outside to work are definitely the favorites for all of us!
