Hands on Science

Today we learned about overcrowded plants and how to deadhead flowering plants.  The kids understood the importance of the roots and then we discussed the process of pollination and seed formation.  I enjoyed watching how tenderly the students handled each flower and were meticulous about when and where to cut the spent blooms.  One student said, " I'm a flower neurosurgeon!" My students have taken ownership of  these living things and it's a beautiful thing to experience.
