Blogging for Kids!

My students will soon have their own blog on KidBlogger. . .  as a form of practice, I want them to report on things they are learning or wanting to do experiments on with and about plants.  So, if you are one of Mixson's kids, feel free to add your comments to this post.  ***Remember, use only your first name and last initial.  Do not give any personal information that could identify you.  And be sure to cite the title and author of the library book you found interesting/helpful.

    The book i read was called plant classification and I think a cool thing we could do was we could could make a dichotomous key about the plant classification with the vocab. words.

  13. PLANTS OF THE WORLD!!!
    Did you know that the South Pole is the only place where plants cannot grow. It's too dark and too cold, and it's covered in ice, a form of water that plants cannot use.

    The book I read was fungi. And what I larend was that some mushroom can be good to eat and some and some can be bad to eat. In the book it said that it is very easy to confuse harmless mushrooms with the bad mushroom's. Two of the good mushroom's are ceps and chanterelles.
