The kids were amazed today that despite the lack of sun we've had lately, the grass in our biomes have grown so much.
We discussed how, as scientists we need to use a careful eye to observe what is happening around us.
After observing their biomes, the kids drew and labeled what they noticed and were able to write about how the biome had everything it needs to support a living thing (air, food, water).
The discovery of condensation on the top of the biomes invited a quick exploration into the water cycle and a discussion about evaporation.
There are so many rich conversations that naturally occur with science. The kids love sharing what they already know and learning about the natural world around them.
