Plant Cell Project

Over the holiday break Landon had a project to do for school. They are currently learning about plant and animal cells, and they had to create a 3-D model of one of the two cells. Landon chose the plant cell, and we had a good time finding things around the house to build his model.

I think the best part of his project was the nucleus that he modeled out of clay and a rubber ball he had in his room. He used almonds for the chloroplast, rolled paper for the mitochondrion and foil for the vacuole. It turned out to be a pretty good project and I think he actually learned quite a bit in doing it!

Time for the Tooth Fairy

So, Harper FINALLY lost his first tooth. It seems that he's a bit later than most kids but I wasn't worried since I've never met...
