Happy Easter - Colored Flowers Science Demonstration
I remember we did this experiment with celery stalks in kindergarten and I loved it. (Thanks Mrs. Gonzalez.) I saw someone do it online with flowers (can't remember where or I would credit) and then spotted white tulips at Trader Joe's and realized flowers instead of celeryu would make for a nice Easter bouquet. Jackson picked the colors and we've been talking about general science words like "experiment" "observation" "conclusion" as much as anything about capillary action or transpiration, etc. That said, I think I'm going to show him the video below in hopes of transferring a little actual knowledge into his skull.
