Which Paint Made from Rocks and Flowers is the Most Saturated?

Paints is very expensive. Ellie was trying to find type of plant/flower/rocks gathered from around her house/neighborhood or school grounds and see if it could be determined which is more satiated. Steps: -collect flowers and crushable rocks -crush both up in muller to fine powder form -mixes with walnut oil -paint both on same canvas

Water the Future

This project revolves around survival of plants without water, by comparing drought and non-drought resistant plants and how long they would survive. In southern California we get a minimum amount of water to these plants without manual watering. In this project, different types of plants will be given little amounts of water replicating a drought.
