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 look closely, draw what I see and lable the parts.

My plant has roots, a stem, leaves and a flower.
There are seeds in the flower.

Reflection

I really like: using what I learned about how plants germinate and grow to grow my own plant.

I think I need to practice: sharing my ideas on the mat and in my group.

Something that really helped me was: doing lots of looking really closely because it helped me to see what was happening.

Like a scientist you look closely (observe) and can draw what you see. You have loads of great ideas Lizzy and it can be tricky to turn those ideas into questions. Have a think about what is interesting to you and what you want to know and try to turn those wonderings into a question. As a scientist your next step is to investigate!
