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 look closely and draw what I see.
I can lable my diagram.

Our plant has roots, a trunk leaves and fruit.
The seeds are in the fruit.

Reflection

I really like: I like sharing my ideas because talking helps me to learn and other people can use my ideas.

I think I need to practice: listening to other people's ideas so I know what is going on and I can share my ideas.

Something that really helped me was: looking closely as they germinated and grew and learning about the plants.

Kerri thinks
A scientist asks questions and thinks about what might happen in an investigation, just like you Luca! I can tell you have enjoyed the hands on science learning this term and have learned a lot about being a scientist and about plants. I love that you share your ideas but remeber to listen to other peoples ideas too. That way we can all learn from each other.
