The kids wanted to go on a nature hunt. We packed up our tools to begin our discovery. I noticed that they have a high interest in trees, flowers,and leaves.They had their butterfly net, bug catching equipment, when the butterflies appeared they just watched and smiled . They didn't want to try to catch them, I asked them why? They both agreed that they wanted the butterflies to be happy flying, not in the net. They were really intrigued about how the branches were growing on the tree above.
DJ is tyring to catch some snails with the fish net. No luck, but did get some snail shells.
Ken found a tree that had a lot of sap inside.
With the nature objects that they collected we made solar prints. Notice the cars, DJ insisted that they be part of our nature study.
They also did a experiment and planted grass seeds for a bottle garden. We really don't know how this will turn out. The kids said "if we water it, and it gets sunlight, and air the grass seeds should grow". I guess I'll have to wait to find out. To see other science projects or experiments that other children are doing visit Adventures In Mommydom for Science Sunday.
