We’ve just finished our first science fair project with Abby. It was a pretty fun experience and it was cool to see her be involved in the whole discovery process. Of course with Abby the project had to deal with flowers. We took water and added food coloring to it. Then stuck a flower in it to see what would happen. Twice each day we would check the flower and take a picture to see what happened. Then we talked about how the stem was like a straw and the water would go up the straw into the leaves and flower pedals.
There are some fancy words to describe all this, but we didn’t really get into that. We were more into it for the experience this year as it was voluntary for the young ones.
