This week we were looking at Desert habitats so to go along with that on science Wednesday we did an experiment to show how cactus expands when it rains.
Here is what you need......
Folded cardstock (like a fan)
tape or Staples to hold the card in a tube shape
Ummmmmmm, Zeke then decided to ROLL the "cactus" into the water and then stand up again!! And what do you suppose, it WORKED!! From there is slowly opened up and spread out all the folds and STILL WAS STANDING!!!! YAY! YAY! Yippee!!!
It was fun, messy and a good lesson in waiting!!!
