my 9-yr old told me the other day he wanted to be able to use the energy from the sun like plants, instead of having to eat food and drink water. if he’s not reading a book, he has a tendency to talk constantly (didn’t learn that from me), so I only half-listened, and had passed it off as just mild interest in the lesson learned from that day’s science class.
but a few days later, he brought this note home in his homework folder. apparently, he’s taking this thing pretty seriously, and now is putting some thought and planning into it. I’m not sure his ingredients make the most sense, but he’s trying.
