On the left we have the Middle Medium Kid. She is going to change the ph in the water/soil and see how it affects the growth of plants.. She is undecided at this point what plants/seeds she will use.
On the right we have the Youngest Medium Kid. She is going to see if music has any affect on the growth of plants. She is going to use Pansies for the entire month of October. Two will be played Country Music, two will be played Gospel Music and two will have no music at all. She will use Miracle Grow Moisture Control to pot them up (six inch pots), play the music at the same time for the same length everyday with the same amount of watering. This is the same child that is raising the Monarchs. She has 13 in the cage right now. She took 4 to school this morning to put in the butterfly cage there. We also counted over 30 caterpillars on our plants at 7:30 this morning! Wonder how many the wasps will get? Oh well, they part of the life cycle too.
If you have any tips and or ideas about these projects please let us know. Not that these kids will take any advice on their projects. Once they make up their minds how they want to do a project.......that's the way it's done. Will keep you updated on the progress of these experiments. We may all learn something.
Photos were taken at 8 this morning......(shirts look pretty cute on)
