I am 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(observe) 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 our own flowers

I think I need to practice: asking more questions because it will help me with my learning.

Something that really helped me was: when we used real plants so we could see the leaf breathing.

Kerri thinks
Like a scientist, you look closely and draw what you see. Observation also helped to to group (classify) your plant bits. I think you did think about what was going to happen in our science investigations, you thought about whether the plants would breathe and if they drink water. Your next step is to make sure you are in a spot that is going to help your learning, this will help you to both listen and share your ideas.
