Our 5th grade science classroom is full of STEAM activities. Many labs take place here with Mrs. Cohan throughout the year and this week is no exception! Today, 5th grade investigated adaptations of plants by dissecting lima beans. One bean was dry, while the other had been soaking in water. Students worked to make connections between this investigation and their experiment of growing a seed in the refrigerator vs. growing a seed in the cabinet at room temperature. Our scientists came to their own conclusions about how seeds survive the winter and how they get nutrients until they are big enough to do photosynthesis. Great work, 5th grade lab scientists!
