This term our inquiry topic is “Plants in action”
We have grown seeds in their own little hothouse (plastic bags)
We have also investigated a flower, we looked at the cross section of a flower and sketched the parts.
Yesterday we began revisiting our wonderings from the beginning of the term. Hazel’s wondering was “how long does it take to grow a mango?” we watched a short film to show how to grow a mango from a mango pip. We think that it takes 2-3 years for a mango tree to grow and produce fruit.
Earlier this week we planted seeds in soil. We chose from nasturtians, alfalfa, beans, mung beans and sprouts. They are growing quickly as you can see from the photos above.
