Fun at Home with Kids

Using Kitchen Scraps to Learn About Plant Science

Monday, August 21, 2017

I was recently invited on our local news station (King 5 News) to share my books and some fun science ideas.  As you all know, I'm a huge fan of using the items you have around the house to learn (because who has time to make a bunch of trips to different stores, am I right?).  One of our favorite things to do is explore plants with seeds and food scraps, so that's what I shared.

The Curious Kid's Science Book has an entire chapter dedicated to learning about and experimenting with plants, but for two quick "Explore" activities, check out the clip below:

And here's a bonus clip of a segment I did on how to encourage scientific questions using baking soda and vinegar from the grocery store:
