Animals including Humans
Observation Over Time - Which exercise works our hearts and bodies the most?
We made predictions and then investigated which type of exercise made our hearts beat the fastest, made us breathe faster and made us feel hot and sweaty. We needed a good rest afterwards!
We looked at the life cycles of different animals and then shared what we’d learned with a partner. We compared the different life cycles to see how they were similar and how they were different.
Comparing hand spans
We’ve been investigating hand spans. We came up with our own question and predictions and how we wanted to test this theory out. We predicted that the older the person the bigger the hand span. Our prediction was generally correct apart from anomalies which we think is due to height.
Guess the Baby!
We worked in groups to guess who the baby photos belonged to - we were very good at working it out!
Look how we’ve changed!
Animals and their Babies
We matched the baby animal to the adult animal and then sorted them into groups - animals that look like the adult and animals that don’t look like the adult.
Observation Over Time - Do all seeds germinate in the same way?
We used magnifying glasses to observe a sunflower seed and a broad bean and then made predictions to answer our question. We placed both seeds on a wet paper towel in a plastic food bag and attached them to the window. We are looking forward to observing our seeds over the next few weeks to see what happens!
