Growing your own plant!
If possible, for the next two weeks Miss R-S would like you to plant your own seed and watch it grow. Before you can do this you will need to make a list of all of the things that you will need and you may need some help from an adult in order to buy some seeds. You can pick any seeds that you would like, however, I recommend sunflowers as a good choice.
Follow the steps below to help you think scientifically. If you are unable to complete this activity or would like another one to do, then please scroll down to see a challenge that involves measuring plants.
As I have mentioned above, the first thing you will need to do is to create a list. In your best handwriting write down all of the items you will need. Think about:
Once you have completed your list you will then need to find/buy all of the items that you need with the help of your adult. When you have sorted everything you can then get ready to plant the seed.
Before you get ready to start planting I would like to challenge you to complete a step by step guide on what you are going to do. You can present this in any format, however, it needs to be clear enough so that someone else can follow your steps/instructions. Here are some ideas on how you could present your instructions:
Now it's time to start planting. If you can it might be nice to take some pictures of the process so that when your plant is fully grown you can see the difference to day one.
Over the next couple of days please record the progress of your plant and how often you give it water. If you would like to, you could complete a plant diary. I have attached two examples below which you can use for inspiration in creating your own.
In your diary you will need to think about the following things:
