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
Our plant has roots, a trunk, leaves and some fruit.
The fruit is where the seeds are.

We have classified our plant bits.
We have put them into groups like seeds, leaves, flowers and cones.









I looked at the plant closely and this is what I could see.

Reflection

I really like: finding what a plant likes to help it germinate and then grow.

I think I need to practice: share my ideas more so other people can hear my thinking.

Something that really helped me was: listening to other people's ideas and then doing some more thinking.


Kerri thinks
What a fantastic honest reflection Jamie. You are really thinking about your learning, just like a scientist.  You observe (look closely) and carefully record what you see. I agree with you... your next learning step is to share your ideas so we can learn from you and your great thinking. Don't be afraid to take a risk!
