Young Botanist

This year in Science we are learning about Botany, the study of plants.  Keaton loves science, and is especially enjoying the experiments and hands-on opportunities. His class at C.H.E.S.S. Academy is doing an experiment with put the celery in jars of water and food coloring, and wait to see what happens.  With celery being vascular, you will soon see the color at the top of the celery stalk.  Keaton HAD to do the same experiment at home.  It looks quite decorative in our kitchen.........!  Yesterday we studied vascular and non-vascular plants, as well as seed coverings in gymnosperms (a pinecone) and angiosperms (an apple).
