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 look very closely (observe) and draw what I see.

























My plant has leaves and roots
How I am going

Reflection

I really like: finding out how plant seeds germinate and growing my own plant.

I think I need to practice: asking questions because I have lots of ideas but asking questions is tricky.

Something that really helped me was: doing lots of investigations to find out about plants like plants do breathe.

Kerri thinks
What a great scientist Toby, you look closely (observe) and you can draw what you see. You predict what is going to happen in our class investigation. You have loads of great ideas and I love that you are always happy to share them. Your next learning step is to try and ask some questions. Have a think about something you wonder about or something you want to find out... can you turn your wonderings into a question to investigate.
