Now that we have had a full week of school, science was back in full swing!  Our scientific week started out with the dissection of a seed.  During the dissection, we learned about the major seed parts; the plant food (cotyledon), seed coat, and baby plant (embryo) .

Then we had the chance to go to Blackstone Park and collect interesting nature specimens which later fueled much learning, discussion, and experimentation in class.  Thanks to Mara for coming along!
