Science Lab Fun

This week students investigated seeds and plant parts.  We soaked lima bean seeds allowing them to germinate.  Using a microscope we viewed the  seed embryos.  We observed the small openings (stomata) on the underside of leaves.  Students colored water to observe the effect on celery leaves and stems.
