UMA's Jennifer Bailey (Silverdale, WA) shares an idea for the Science area of the classroom:
"We are doing a spring botany unit and are discussing the needs of plants. We have an experiment going to see what happens when plants don't get what they need...
1. The first plant is the control getting both sun and water (L=sun, R=raindrop)
2. The next gets sun but no water (L=sun, R=slash-marked raindrop)
There are two plants under the boxes:
3. One gets water (L=slash-marked sun, R=raindrop)
4. The other does not (L=slash-marked sun, R=slash-marked raindrop)
We check them every couple of days and we're talking about the results that we are seeing."
Great idea...thanks, Jennifer!
