This two page printable is a great way to introduce the scientific method to younger students while keeping them fully engaged! The carnation experiment is a great addition to a plant unit, and a fun way to incorporate science into your spring curriculum! Students will make predictions, draw observations, and think about the "why" question. Directions are included. This experiment can be done with any white flowers, but for best results use carnations! Please leave a comment in the comment section and let me know how this activity worked with your students!
