T2 Change - Plants and Seeds

We are learning to understand that:
Scientists follow a specific process and ask questions that lead to investigations.
Plants need many things to move through the life cycle.
We will be able to:

Label the parts of a plant.
Classify objects using a Venn diagram
We will know we can do this when we can:
Draw pictures that depict the life cycle of plants.
Correctly label the parts of a plant

Sort and classify leaves into categories of our own making and independently represent these in a Venn diagram.

Term 2 Art Attack

We are learning to: 
  • make a tapa cloth.
  • choose a design to complete
  • follow the procedure to make it using paper, crayon, vivid markers and Indian ink.

We looked at a lot of pictures of Tapa Cloth patterns and decided to base our design on flowers.
How we made it.
First we screwed up some paper then we drew a square, and folded it so we could get a dot for the centre. Then we drew a flower, and some of the outside. After that we had to go over it in vivid and then we had to put Indian ink on.
