Eating our radishes

We picked our radishes this morning. They were large red ones and tasted delicious. We made them into radish rolls using lettuce so we could eat them for munch time. Most of us really enjoyed eating the. next we planted purple runner beans around our tepees so that when they grow we will be able to go inside the tepees and see the beans around them.

Steam Engine

Yesterday we learned that to make energy we needed to change something into it. Water needed to be  turned into steam by heating it to turn a motor. Wind turns a turbine to make electricity.
