Unschooling He-Man and Donut: Avocado Seed Sprouting
Me: Hey Donut! I have an idea! Let's take these avocado pits and sprout them! It will be like a science experiment!
Donut: Yeah! That will be fun!
Me: He-Man, you want to join us?
He-Man: No. (playing with Wall-E figurines, can't take the time to even look up)
So, I got online and read how to set up the experiment. We got out the toothpicks, the jars that live in my microwave and ALWAYS get used, and we washed the avocado seeds but only after we used the extra meat to moisturize our hands (something I always look forward to doing).
Me: What do you think is going to happen to them, Donut?
Donut: I think they are going to change.
Me: Yeah? What are they going to change into?
Donut: They are going to turn purple!
We'll see, I suppose! Will keep you posted! So far, not purple.
