Something I like to instill in my girls is the fact that there is life everywhere; even in the most inconspicuous places. We went outside today and gathered some pinecones that had fallen to the ground. We did some detective work to see if we could find life inside a pinecone.
Araina immediately spotted a spider camouflaged inside one of the pinecones.
Out fell seeds……
If you want to pull the PTOE into this lesson google pinecones and carbon. Scientists are using the carbon in pinecones for batteries and as a new energy resource. It’s really quite fascinating.
