This unit introduces children to the idea of plants as living things which grow and change. Children should become aware of similarities and differences in plants.
Experimental and investigative work focuses on:
- turning ideas into a form that can be tested
- making and recording observations
- using results to communicate what happened and to draw conclusions.
Children also have opportunities to link their knowledge of how plants grow to their understanding of science and to ways in which growing plants should be treated with sensitivity.
This unit takes approximately 9 hours.
