Roots

Sorry it’s been so long since I last posted.  I’ve been in San Antonio attending NSTA (National Science Teachers Association) Conference.  I was there last week and I’m getting caught up on everything!  I had a great time there and was able to attend over 20 different workshops all about difference science ideas!  I’ll be sharing them in the future, but for the time being, here is a look at the science lab we did late last week. 🙂

 

Will our roots grow up or down?  We planted some lima bean seeds last week and after they spout, we will check to see if after moving the bags around, will the roots keep growing in the same direction.  Here we are planting our beans:

These are our Science Notebooks laid our for us to use when we are done planting seeds. IMG_4982

This is how we started our science notebook entry for our beans.
