Dissecting Daffodils


Science lesson for today, botany.  We did daffodil dissecting, a lesson we could do in our front yard with what we already had on hand.  The girls were super excited about it, they had to wait DAYS for the daffodils to be fully open.  It was an excruciating wait, but somehow they made it through.  The highlight for them was getting to use a knife to cut open the flower.  Even though they didn't need to use a knife, scissors would have done fine, maybe even better, they were using knives, outside, in a parent-sanctioned activity.  Amazing the things that make their day, isn't it?
