1:30pm Science Investigation Walk
Take a walk and look at plants in your local area.
Where do plants grow? What makes it a good place for a plant to grow?
Where are there no plants? And why don’t they grow there?
Record your findings on a table with words and/or pictures. Use the table below or draw your own.
Answer this question: What do plants need for life and growth?
Challenge yourself: Can you think of all 5 things a plant needs to live and grow?
The answers will be provided tomorrow.
**IMPORTANT In readiness for our plant dissection tomorrow, on your walk collect a dandelion (flower with about 8cm of stem). When you get home put it in a cup with a few drops of blue/black/dark food colouring and 1 cm of water. Don’t worry if you don’t have food colouring, there will be photos tomorrow so you can see what would have happened.
