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
Like a scientists, I can look closely and draw what I see.

Reflection

I really like: when we planted seeds of our own and watched them grow.

I think I need to practice: asking more questions because you need to learn more things about plants

Something that really helped me was: when we got to watch our seeds growing then we could talk about them growing.

Kerri thinks
The investigations taught us about plants and also taught us how to be scientists. We can ask questions and do some finding out to try and answer our question. You think about what might happen (make an hypotheses). I love that you share you ideas and talking has helped you to learn to be a scientist. Great job!
