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:
Show the life cycle of a plant.
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.

T2 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 did it.
First we scrunched up paper, then we flattened it out on our table. We made our flower design then we coloured it in brown. After that we outlined it in a vivid and put Indian ink on it.
