We did a few projects recently, and two of them were edible, which made the kids very happy. Our first project was mummifying apples. And, as you may have guessed already, we didn't eat these.
We were shocked to find that the covered apples actually looked older than the uncovered apples, but they were well preserved.
(I of course would have rather had jello with fruit, but the kit came with candy, so that's what we used.)
Well our next project made Hannah very happy. We made an edible DNA , using red licorice and mini marshmallows.
After we finished each one, we wrote everything we learned, down in our science notebooks.
Well I hope you enjoyed reading about our food projects. If you have any questions or tips, please leave a comment below. I hope to hear from you soon, GOD Bless! : c )
Note: These ideas are not my own, the first two came from" Apologia's -Exploring Creation with Anatomy." The third project , I found on The Happy Housewife blog .
