Science Investigations-Growing French Breakfast Radishes in Pots!
Some of our home-schooled children have been conducting science investigations.
Over time, they have been carrying out a collection of investigations around the topic of plants, looking at life cycles, factors affecting growth, parts of a plant as well as composting and plants that we eat.
They have been identifying and describing the functions of different parts of flowering plants: roots, stem/trunk, leaves and flowers.
This also included the following:
• exploring the requirements of plants for life and growth (air, light, water, nutrients from soil, and room to grow) and how they vary from plant to plant
• investigating the way in which water is transported within plants
• exploring the part that flowers play in the life cycle of flowering plants, including pollination, seed formation and seed dispersal.
The children are looking forward to many more exciting activities that are yet to come!
