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 closely like a scientist and I draw what I see.
My plant has roots, a trunk, some leave and some fruit.
How I am going

Reflection

I really like: we got to learn new things like plants can breathe and leaves are the plants food factories.

I think I need to practice: sharing my ideas. I need to listen so I know what is going on.

Something that really helped me was: Drawing the plants and doing the really close looking and drawing what I can see.

Kerri thinks
As a scientist you have worked really hard to learn all sorts of new things! You look closely and draw what you can see. I know you have loads of great ideas Zoe, your next step is to practise shareing your ideas with the group so we can all learn together!
