Summer is perfect time to go over plant science!!!

We have a huge Summer garden every year! We have added to it yearly to gradually make it larger and this year is no exception!
My 2 boys love to plot and plan with me, deciding what new plants we are adding and why!!
Then we use these growing plants to do science about plants.
These plants are growing with heat from the sun, perfect point to talk about heat energy!
They are blooming and being pollinated by bees or other bugs! Perfect time to bring in the balance of nature between animals and plants!
We can take an extra bloom off and dissect it to see that different parts of a flower!
And when all is said and done, we can take these lovely veggies and fruits that we have nurtured and watered and weeded....and create a delicious meal to feed and energize our own bodies!
Life is a science lesson and Summer is a great time to find things to use!!!
Happy Homeschooling!
