I love Spring! There is just so much that we can do with school now. This week we introduced the scientific method. I let Madison determine the problem. She wanted to find out how many days it takes for different seeds to sprout. So here's our experiment using the scientific method.
Her Question/The Problem: How many days does it take for different seeds to sprout?
Her Hypothesis: The seeds will grow at different times.
Our Variables: seeds (cucumbers, peppers, cantaloupe, carrots), water, sun and soil
Testing the Hypothesis: Planted seeds in an egg carton
Conclusion to come:
I love this because it doesn't take a lot of time from the 3 Rs but she/they are learning about science inquiry and process skills through applying the scientific method. Springtime allows for so much more of these type of activities.
We studied parts of the plant and drew a diagram.
The Life Cycle of a Butterfly.
