2.3 Sow and Grow

This lesson requires 2 periods over a course of 1 week (7 days). In the first session, students are introduced to the element of a system for tracking relatively slow change (plants germinating and growing) and in setting up the system, including ‘planting’ seeds in damp cotton wool and paper. In the second session, approx 7 days later (depending on conditions) students will examine their recording of the change and use the photographs obtained to make a presentation for their classmates.

During this lesson, students will gain understanding of how change occurs in plant life over time. Students will integrate and exhibit learning by identifying and recording changes over time.
