Botany - Light Hut

Our science studies this year are through Apologia's Botany book. We are enjoying all the projects and fun things to do in this book. We just built our light hut and hopefully we can get somethings to grow. We have planted pumpkins seeds and basil, so we will see how it goes. Enjoy our pictures of Allison building her light hut:

Allison and our supplies to get started
Cutting a hole in the butter bowl lid to hold the light bulb in place
Carefully cutting air vents in our box
Glue for the foil that covers the inside of our box

Securing the light & socket to the box We have a lighted hut Allison showing off the finished product, foil curtains on the outside and all. She was very proud of her work, and she did it all pretty much by herself. I directed and supervised, but she did the work!!!
Hope you enjoyed our pictures!!!
