Dissecting the Hyacinth Bulb

Now that our hyacinths have bloomed we thought it would be interesting to put the bulbs out for exploration. We provided tweezers and safety glasses and invited the children to explore. 

The girls got right to work dissecting the bulbs. 

It was interesting to hear their observations of what they noticed. "It feels like worms but they are actually roots", "it looks like an onion", and "it's very soft underneath".

The children recorded their observations in a labelled drawing.
