Our topic this term is Plants. Over the next few weeks, Miss Grossman will be planting some flowers and vegetables at home to see how they grow.

 

Lesson 1:

To identify and name a variety of common wild plants by going on a wild plant hunt.

 

Success criteria:

I can identify and name common wild plants.

I can gather and record data to help in answering questions by finding out which wild plant is the most common.

I can gather information to answer a question.

Below is the link to your 'wild flower hunt' recording sheet. If you are unable to print this, just create your own on some paper with the names and a space for the tally!

Scientific questions to talk about at home:

What does a seed need to grow?

 

Key words:

wild, weed, common, tally

I look forward to hearing which wild plants were most commonly spotted on your walk. You can send your science learning to the class email!

Extension: 

 

Watch this video on Explorify then answer the following questions:

  1. What do the seeds need to germinate?
