We have been learning to be Scientists

Success criteria:

  • Pose an inquiry question around plants

  • Create and and write an experiment to help find out

  • Make an hypothesis                                

  • Explain the importance of fair testing        

  • Make observational notes

  • Label a diagram

  • Make conclusions



My comment:Firstly we learnt about germination. I didn’t even know this word!! It is amazing when you learn new experiments plants couldn’t grow without soil Kelly thought we should do an experiment  on seeds growing in a bag with tissue. We did observations on this every day and draw  diagrams. We watched a timelapse- youtube video, to break down all the steps in germination. In another experiment we covered the seeds with a black piece of paper to keep the sunlight out. But the beans still germinated! We then wrote an explanation about this.

Kelly’s comment:

You have been a keen scientist this term Danika. You have learnt by exploring, experimenting, observing, comparing and contrasting and by researching and asking. You can experiment every day at home and school.
