With the rain continuing to come down outside, we started our day on a soggy note.
I woke early this morning with good intentions of getting an earlier start in school and was slammed in the eye from Daisy jumping onto the bed! Her head (bone) hit my left eye and the area swelled up a bit and is very tender to the touch. I am hoping that it doesn’t turn black and blue because then I don’t have to explain that one!
I wrote out Isabel’s Bible verse for the week for her to study and practice this week.
She’s doing very well at learning the Psalm.
She would have missed 2 words today but corrected
“acknowledgment” just before handing her paper in.
Such good practice for her.
She stumbles one day on a multiple and other multiple the next.
Put on the full armor of God.
Love the crosses that she added.
Bean and Corn science:
Today we are wrapping up all our experiments and studies on our bean and corn science. Tomorrow we complete the final assignment.
Isabel’s beans grew tall and thin.
While her corn was short and thin.
Studying hard and getting her data gathered for graphing.
These 2 leaves (next 2 photos) she smeared with petroleum jelly (2 weeks ago) on the underside and upper side of the leaves to see which side had the stomata. Stomata, it’s nose so to speak, are the tiny openings in leaves that allow it to breathe air.
The stomata on this leaf are on the underside of the leaf.
The leaf is just beginning to look sickly because it’s “nose” as been plugged.
This leaf she smeared with jelly on the upper side of the leaf.
This leave is bigger, green, slimy (from the jelly) and thriving!
The result is clear when looking at both photos that the stomata are located on the underside of the bean leaf plant. What a awesome experiment!
This leaf was wrapped in aluminum foil for 2 weeks.
It is still green but much smaller in size compared to other leaves on the plant.
Isabel’s prediction 2 weeks ago was that it would be yellow from lack of photosynthesis.
