I'm so glad that Jack loves science and experiments. It's hard trying to find new ones that interest him. We are trying to get Jack more active and keep him busy with less video games and more hands on type stuff. He wanted to help me plant my flowers and he was asking a lot of questions about seeds and plants. So we planted and did a few experiments.
We put stalks of lettuce in colored water to see how plants take in water. We isolated an avacado pit , cut open beans to look at the seed coat , looked at several different types of seeds and compared them and the germination bean experiment. We will check back on the germination experiment and the avacado pit after a week or two. We also put socks on over our shoes and walked I'm the tall grass by the trees , then took the socks off and shook them over paper, so we could see the seeds. We did this after reading a book about how seeds travel.
It was such a beautiful day and the rain held off. We went for a walk and enjoyed reading time in the hammock. This is the first time I have had success with planting in the ground and not just I'm a pot. Our sunflowers are starting to come up. I got my first bloom of the season from the perennial clematis, it is the first time I have ever had a perennial come back. Yay
