I am a scientist

We have been learning to think like scientists this term. Learning all about plants has helped us to become scientists. We have been asking lots of questions and trying to answer them. We found out that plants breathe and drink water. We found the best way to germinate a seed – seeds need water to germinate but the plant needs water, soil and sun to grow well.
WALT: investigate
         Ask questions
         Make predictions (think about what is going to happen)
         Observe and record what happens    
Use what we have observed to make conclusions
WALT share our ideas

Task
Show my science learning using play dough, drawing and labelling what we can see, classifying the plants and completing the plant life cycle activity.

Success Criteria:
I can ask questions
I think about what might happen
I look closely (observe)
I share my ideas
Like a scientist I look closely and draw what I can see.

Reflection

I really like: growing our own sweet peas

I think I need to practice: adding a little more detail to my drawings

Something that really helped me was: looking closely and learning the right names of the parts of the plant.


Kerri thinks
We investigated what a seed needs to germinate and then what a plant needs to keep growing. We used our learning to grow our own plants and I am pleased you enjoyed this learning. Learning to look closely and drawing what you see, with details, will help you as a scientist and as an artist. I love the ideas you share Charlotte and would love to hear you more during whole class chats. Have confidence in your voice!
