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 draw and label what I see, like a scientist

Out tree has roots, a trunk, leaves and seeds.

Reflection

I really like: growing my own snow pea

I think I need to practice: thinking about what might happen because it will help me be a better scientist.

Something that really helped me was: that I could see on real plants what we were learning about and learning the names of the parts of the plant.

Kerri thinks
You do think like a scientist Caleb. You can ask questions and think about what might happen and you love to share your ideas with the group. I am pleased that looking at and growing real plants helped you in your learning about plants. Remember to to listen to the ideas of others as well, this is how we learn and grow.
