Rose Hips–Wild Rose

Today while watching The Mysteries of Alfred Hedgehog (which is one of the girls favorite shows) we started a new type of school work.  They love watching this show, as well as Wild Kratts and other educational shows. 

In our Creaturepedia and Plantpedia notbeook, Selena wrote out her first research page.  The episode was “The Mysterious Itch” and Milo is itching like crazy, while Alfred and Camille search for the cause. 

It turns out that Milo had made jam from rose hips, and the little hairs on the rose hips cause itching and are also used to make itching powder. 

We looked up rose hips and roses on wikipedia and got to see some interesting pictures of them.  We also learned that rose hips are a great source of vitamins.

After finishing our research, Selena wrote out her information page, and I made rose bush pancakes and we had rose hip and lemongrass tea.
