Plant Study

 We loved doing our Chemistry lessons so much that we are beginning a short unit on plants from the same teacher.  Here you see Elf and Emperor constructing molecules and learning about the process of photosynthesis.  I gave them bunches of candy corn, peas and dried corn and they decided which would represent carbon, oxygen and hydrogen.  Hopefully, they learned that the process of photosynthesis doesn't add or subtract any of our elements, but does rearrange them.

  2. That's a neat idea!

    We've done atoms with colored marshmallows before. There always seems to be one or two that are mysteriously missing electrons before Daddy gets home.
