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 can sort the plant bits into groups like seeds, roots and leaves.

Reflection

I really like: when we grew the bean seeds in the different jars and the jar with soil grew the best bean. The dry seed didn't do anything.

I think I need to practice: To keep looking closely to help me to learn about plants and animals.

Something that really helped me was: growing the beans and the peas so I could see the roots and the shoots.

Kerri thinks
You think about what is going to happen in our investiagetions. You look closely (observe) and can draw what you see. You have loads of great ideas and can share them with the class. As a scientist, your next step is to try and think about what it is that you want to find out so you can ask questions and you (we) can carry out an investigation.
