Saturday-Friday 10/4/08-10/10/08

This week, we went to UC Davis to meet my Aunt Stephanie for lunch and to go to the Explorit Science Center. In the Science Center we got to do robotics, wind experiments, and hard puzzles.

I also got to try to put together a closed circuit to light a light bulb.

Here is a picture of me doing that:

Before we went to the Explorit Science Center, we went to the Arboretm, where there is a bunch of different kinds of plants and animals. After the Arboretum, we went to the one of the UC Davis Dining Commons to meet my Aunt Stephanie for lunch.

Also this week, we went on a botany hunt where our Mom gave us clues about the plants that we were looking for, and then we had to do rubbings of one of the plants' leaves or bark.

Here are some pictures of the botany hunt:
These pictures are of (in no particular order) my brother, Wilson, my sister, Joey, and me.
Earlier this week, we planted some seeds in a container. Both Joey's seeds and my seeds have begun to sprout. I planted some wheat seeds and pumkin seeds in my container. I also learned about the biomes tundra and coniferous forest through DVDs and books.

What a great trip to Davis! Your electrical circuit looks neat. Thank you for sharing about your botany learning!

Hi Ricky loved the pictures in your blog. Auntie Stephie had a great time going to the museum with you. I wish I could have gone too!
Love you, Grandma
