Growing the Seeds of Scientific Enquiry
Deller, Clarysly
Primary Science, n149 p31-33 Sep 2017
As plants and seed dispersal are common themes in primary science, the author thought that she would share an enquiry challenge activity that addresses many of the "working scientifically" objectives of the National Curriculum for England. Year 3 and 4 children had a whole afternoon made up firstly of "playing", planning and thinking time, then designing and perfecting time, and finally the joint challenge in the playground where they tested their seed carrier designs and recorded their results.
