We are working our way through this fantastic plant unit, Plants Science Works for Kids Series by Evan Moor - and I love it!!! Holly is having a great time with it, enjoying all the hands on approaches to learning. We are also reading several other books to go along with this unit.
A recent study we did was to learn about stems of a plant and how they work, what they do for the plant. For Holly to see this in action we did the classic white carnation in colored water as well as a celery stalk in colored water. We then watched them for a couple of days to see the transformation, talked about what happened and noted the changes. A great visual to help learn more about how stems work.
