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

My plant has some roots, a trunk and some leaves.
On the side there is a cone.

I look closely (observe) and can draw what I see

Reflection

I really like: our first experiment to see if leaves can breathe.

I think I need to practice: asking more questions because I usually don't have ideas.

Something that really helped me was: learning all the names of the parts of the plants so I could label my pictures correctly.

Kerri thinks
Just like a scientist you look closely (observe) and draw what you can see. I am pleased our investigations have helped you in your learning. I think you have loads of ideas and wonderings and you next step is think about these wonderings to see if we can come up with a question to investigate.
