For the next few minutes the children were intensely attentive to nature, and their own expectations. Eventually, it was decided that buttercups usually have five petals. We went back to that four-petaled buttercup and noticed more--something had obviously chewed on it.
The children and I had a chance to practice paying close attention to details, we are now making fewer assumptions, and we're asking new questions. I wonder what we will discover when the peony buds are bigger?
