Science Fact Check.  After yesterday’s Science Walk, did you list these 5 requirements of a plant to live and grow?  




Nutrients from soil 

Room to grow 

Have you started growing something at home over the holiday?  If so, make sure you give it all 5 of these things to help it live and grow.  We would welcome photos for the Year 3 gallery of you and your plants now and as they grow. 😊 Might we even see a photo of some of them on a dinner plate eventually? That would be amazing. It could be as a vegetable—or maybe as a Master Chef (non-edible) garnish! 


Today you are going to do 2 dissections. 

1. To investigate the way in which water is transported in plants (before lunch). 

2. To find the parts of a flower (after lunch). 


For the 1st dissection, open the document ‘Water transportation in plants’.  Dissect your dandelion to find the xylem.
