Go through the power point presentation on your class web page and the video link to learn more about plants in gardens. Did you find any of them when you went spotting? Did you get the names right? Which part of the plant is actually the flower?

 

Activity 4

Get Creative

Think of a garden that you would like to spend time in. It could be your own garden, a garden that you like to visit, or it could be a public garden or park. Which garden is a happy place for you? What kind of plants grow in your favourite garden?

We would like you to plant a bean, sunflower or any seed you have at home to see what happens. 

Go through the attached power point presentation - Planting Seeds- up to slide 11.

Plant your seed in a pot. You will need to monitor it for the next few weeks and record your observations in your ‘My Plant Diary’ booklet (Your parents can get this for you at the School office).

 

What will you need to do to your plant?  Where would you put it?

Work through the rest of the slides from page 13- 15.

Plant three more seeds to use as the test seeds for no water, no light and no soil.

 

What do you think will happen to these plants? Will they grow? Will they be healthy?
