I am not certain we qualify as true scientists, but hey. We finished the project. We’ve come up with some results and a ton of more questions. So the seeds in compost grew the best. Worm castings and potting soil were 2nd and 3rd respectively. However neither of the runners up were spectacular at all. … Continue reading Tomato experiment
I really don’t know what to say about our experiments. Both composts sprouted first. Worm castings have a very, very tiny spout starting. Dirt however is a no starter. I have been watering a lot more and trying to keep track of the amounts, but for dirt it just seems to dry out within a … Continue reading Odd results
I am all about the class coming up with solutions. Even if I regret that decision later. I expressed to the kids my concern with worms being in the castings. They agreed and came up with a solution; pick them out! Of course they would come up with that idea. So we had our K4 … Continue reading Ok now we wait…
We have a bag of tomatoes seeds that have been to outer space. We also have some regular tomato seeds. So we’re going to plant them all and see what happens. We started our last big project for science today. Growing plants in our compost, worm castings and plain dirt. Seems pretty easy, but making … Continue reading Space Tomatoes vs Earth’s Mightiest Tomatoes
Earlier this school year I started a worm farm. The purpose was the show the kids how worms help in the decomposition process. As well, I wanted to use the worm soil (castings) for a science project in the Sprig. Well, we’re finally here. NASA does experiments with plant seeds to see how they’ll hold … Continue reading Finally finishing our experiment
It’s been a while since our school has had a science fair. Well we certainly made up for it this week. Continue reading Our first school wide STEAM fair
2019 has started off wonderful. I honestly can’t complain. I need to get my head about me and blog more, but I have been hit or miss this entire journey. You know one day soon I am going to talking about retirement. It seems like a thousand years from now, but it will be soon … Continue reading 2019 is off to….
