    We always love doing science experiments too – even still. I agree about not giving them the whole “recipe” for the experiment. That is like telling them how the magic trick is done before you even show them the trick.

    I did my first science fair project in 1st grade about this subject too. “How My Plants & Seeds Grow”. I have the report – I will have to scan it and share it someday.

    My first grade son just came home with an 83% on a science worksheet. The question said circle the things a seed needs to begin to grow. The choices were water, warmth, light and air. My son, being a science geek, circled water and warmth. He lost 17% because he did not circle light. I just jotted off a note to his teacher to reconsider his grade. In the meantime, I will let him devise his own experiment so that he can see for himself that he was indeed right.

      Well, it doesn’t require light to sprout, but it does require light to grow, so I could see it from either side.
