In science club this week the children investigated a variety of seeds produced by trees found in Grovelands Park.
The children worked scientifically through observation (using magnifying glasses) and shared their ideas, as they compared the different seeds.
They learnt that:
Plants produce a variety of seeds
Seeds come in different sizes and shapes
What is inside a seed?
Plants use a variety of strategies to disperse their seeds.
Our first Science Club session was INCREDIBLE! I enjoyed it so much. I could have done it ALL WEEK!
The aim of our first task was to make a bubble mixture with certain ingredients and record it. Our second task was to see who made the biggest bubble out of their mixture. The classroom was a MESS but the tables were really clean afterwards.
Miss Torres is a brilliant Science teacher and I encourage you all to join Science Club next term.
Our aim was to make parachutes out of different materials which all have surface area. We used characters in cups to be held up by the parachutes. The aim is that the parachute that falls the slowest (lands last)is the winner. The air resistance from the surface area makes the parachute slower. I learnt the bigger the surface area makes objects fall slower.
