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:23/6

 Firstly at the start of the term we learn't about the word germination. It is a part of a plant's life cycle. Riya said plants need soil to grow but after that we did a experiment to see if they could grow without soil. We got some gideonse about it.

We found differences and similarities in our own experiments. We compared some if they had two or more. We drew a Venn diagram to help us but it had to be a very detailed one. We compared the celery to find out where the water go's. Comparing means your looking at two things and you're asking yourself which one is better.

We worked in to figure out what is the group hypothesis is. It was called our group inquiries. We wrote a experiment. We planned the experiment. We had a question to solve!

I learnt some new vocab while I was doing science. I learnt ones like seed coat, cotyledon and embryo.

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