Morse Code

Today the kids enjoyed learning about Samuel Morse and the Morse Code. After reading about him they had fun writing messages to each other in Morse code. I too wrote them a little message. They had fun decoding it together.

Then in science we did a fun and easy experiment. My kids both love science! So I was a cool teacher today for doing this one. This experient was to show Capillary Action in Flowers. We do experiments the same way each time. We make a Hypothesis. We record our times...stuff like that.

So! We started with white carnations and added food color to the water to watch them pull water and show off their colors! It only took an 21 minutes before we saw color in the petals.

After 21 Minutes

After 3 hours
