and a more detailed drawing for M.
So our first experiment was to show how water travels up the plant stem to the petals. I filled a small glass with water and added a lot of blue food colouring and then waited.
After half an hour you could already see that the dyed water had travelled up the stem to the petals.
An hour later the flowers were dyed a lovely blue, even if I do say it myself
and a few hours later even darker blue.
We also looked at the tulips and took one apart, looking at the petals, stamen, carpel and pollen. They lined up the petals and stamen and counted them.
They then enjoyed making patterns and people with the petals etc, this led to much make believe and story telling.
