Thursday morning, July 9th
Margaret Hammer, FIRST STEP
teacher from the 1996-97 program gave a great presentation on what she was able
to do with plants. Being brought up in a desert environment, many of our
vegetables were grown hydroponically but I never knew how it was done. Thanks
to Margaret and the direction given by the program, this can be conducted very
easily in the classroom with some very simple materials. While we were
preparing to put our sprouts in the large container, some of us found a way to
make single units. This would be perfect for those wanting to take theirs
home and continuing the activity.
Owl Pellets? What are owl pellets you may ask. Well one thing they
are not is owl excrement. Owls regurgitate their food after they are done
digesting it. What comes out looks like a ball of fur. If you dissect
one, you will be amazed what you find. Try it!!
