Change - Venn Diagrams

Change - Plants and Seeds

We are learning to understand that:
Scientists follow a specific process and ask questions that lead to investigations.
Plants need many things to move through the life cycle.

We will be able to:
Show the life cycle of a plant.
Label the parts of a plant.
Classify objects using a Venn diagram

We will know we can do this when we can:
Draw pictures that depict the life cycle of plants.
Understand and describe how plants make their own food from water, air (CO2) and sunlight (photosynthesis).
Sort and classify leaves into categories of our own making and independently represent these in a Venn diagram.

Noah said, "In topic I have planted a been plant.  I have learnt plants make their food in their leaves.  They make food by mixing sun, water and air in their leaves to make sugar.  It's called photosynthesis.  I learnt about life-cycles and that seeds can drop, get carried by animals, and float like coconuts.  I have been learning to make a venn diagram and sort things into a venn diagram. I put smooth and jagged for the words.  There was only one smooth leaf and there were five in the middle that are a little bit jagged and a little bit smooth. Six leaves are jagged.  I can understand venn diagrams."
