Science - Plants

We took our plant out of the dark and decided to see what would happen if we started giving the plant light. We noticed before that even though the plant had grown with water in the dark but it was not looking healthy. It was alomost yellow and white. We know healthy leaves are usually green. Look what happened after just one day with light!!! What changes have happened in just 24 hours?

Check out our individual plants! We have been growing cress. We have been making observations daily and making notes regularly. We will be bringing our cress home this week...what will you do with yours? Cress sandwich?

We have been making observations over time with our class experiment! We have noticed that the plant with water but no light is the only one that has grown! However we noticed that the plant doesn't have a healthy colour. We think that the light helps the plant to grow healthy. The plant we gave light and water has not grown at all!

Munira, Muhammad, Ameelah and Khadija also started their own experiment where they set out to find out what would happen to cress when they change the amount of water. They followed instructions and completed predicitons. They have 3 pots; one with no water, one with some water and one with lots of water.

We have been learning about what a plant needs to survive and grow healthily. We all planted our own cress seeds. We also started an experiment over time. We planted 4 beans. One with light and water, one with water but no light, one with light but no water and finally one with no light and no water!!!

Idenitfying and naming common wild and garden plants. We enjoyed handling the plants - this gave us lots of opportunities to discuss the basic structure of a plant! We generated lots of questions about the plants!
