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
I obseve and draw what I see.


















"Our plant started as a seed.
It has roots, a shoot, some leaves and a flower.
The flower has some seeds on it.

Reflection

I really like: growing the plants because we used what we learned about what plants like to be able to germinate and grow.

I think I need to practice: getting my ideas out of my brain and into my mouth so I can share them better.

Something that really helped me was: looking closely at the plant I drew and looking closely at the beans as they grew.

Eowyn, you have loads of great ideas and wonderings. I would love to share your ideas and thinking more and more so we can learn from you and the connections you make. As a scientist you observe (look closely) and you can accurately draw what you see. Your next step is to think about what you want to find out and try and ask some questions...then you/we can do an investigation.
