The kids working hard in their PACES.
Nathan’s celery experiment right after we put the celery in the red water (Tuesday Nov 3).
The next day (Nov 4): Hard to see the red here, but it’s a little red in the leaves.
There’s a closer picture.
So we learned that the leaves turned red from the celery pulling up the red water through the bottom of the plant. It would probably work with a white flower as well. It was to kind of show how roots would send the water up to the leaves of a plant (minus the roots here).
This school week seemed endless. The kids are struggling to concentrate. I’m struggling to keep my sanity and had a slip of it the one day (ugh). Over the nice weekend they are going outside to enjoy it! 🙂 We have a few more field trips planned this year and those days will be wonderful!
