Today I found a birds nest on the ground in a field near our house. It must have blown down in a recent storm. It is amazing that a bird can build this using just their beaks and feet.
While I was out I collected two jars of pond water. I did not take a picture because you cannot see much. With a magnifying glass you can see tiny little creatures in the water. There are a few little snails. Tomorrow I am going to look at some pond water under the microscope.
This next experiment involves a bottle, banana and a balloon. The question was can you blow up a balloon with a banana. The experiment called for a mashed banana. I did not want to waste a banana so I tried using the peel. So far it has not done much. This picture was taken after about 6 hours.
If it works I want to try other things to blow up balloons. I know that vinegar and baking soda will work. Maybe I could try hot water, diet coke and menthos, hmmmm. This could get interesting.
Here are some plants that I have been attempting to grow. Of the 6 that I planted 2 have sprouted. The one on the left is a cactus and the one on the right is a pine tree. Now, let’s see if I can keep them alive.
