Studying Plants

For the last two weeks, we've been studying plants. We learned that plants are living things, the parts of the plant, each part's job, what they need to grow, about photosynthesis, how seeds travel and their parts, and how insects help them.

To help the kids understand how a plant drinks, we put blue food coloring in a vase of water. We put a celery stalk and a white flower in the vase. Over the next few days, we observed the blue color moving up the celery and flower.

We also planted some seeds of our own and watched them grow.
