A Hidden Beauty

Expose the beautiful mystery of bulbs as young botanists learn all about these fascinating plants. They glean information from a short text before observing actual bulbs (consider an onion), and comparing their findings with predictions. Incorporate poetry by asking kids to come up with an acrostic poem using the word bulb, or have younger kids simply copy the example poem. The final aspect here is especially fun; use the recipe here for homemade play dough with a surprise in the middle of each ball. Kids begin kneading the dough, and suddenly it turns color! Display the unexpected color of a bloom by giving learners different colors.
