Science Week 7
We are going to be learning all about plants. During beautiful weather it is the perfect time for most plants to grow!
Have a look through the presentations and videos to learn more about this topic. There are lots of resources attached, including an experiment, but you can also carry out your own research too. Think about some fun facts that you might want to find out. Here are a few questions that you might want to think about:
What happens to a plant if it has no water?
Can a plant grow in the dark?
Why is it important that we have sunshine?
Why is it important that we have rain?
Why are plants important for our planet?
If a plant has no heat, will it still grow?
How does a seed become a plant?
Once you have done some research, choose one of the tasks below to complete:
1. Have a go at the celery experiment. What do you notice? Write up what you found out.
2. Choose a flower and carry out some research on it. You might have the flower in your garden, or you might find one in a book or on the internet. Draw the flower, label its parts and then write facts about what you have learnt.
3. Create a leaflet to explain the function of the different parts of a plant.
4. Have a go at planting a flower in your garden. Create a plan of what you will need to make sure the plant grows and how you will look after it once you have planted it.
5. Complete one of the worksheets attached.
6. If you go on a walk, use the plant identification worksheet to see which plants you can spot.
7. Complete the experiment in the PowerPoint. See if you can write up your experiment. Don’t forget to include:
