Lesson 4


Getting hands on with science is one of my favourite things about it as a subject.  I love doing tests and experiments and finding out how and why things act, behave, grow or work the way they do.  It's great when things go right as we expected and more fun when things go wrong or not as we expected and we have to work out why?  One of the tricky parts about science though is explaining what I've found out... concluding experiments. So why not make this part as much fun as the rest of science? 

This week I want you to get into role and be that enthusiastic and animated biologist like David Belemy  - or the cool, calm and collected presenter that is David Attenborough or you can even give it your best impression of the mad and crazy scientist Miss Copley and present your investigation findings to me in a creative way!  Dressing-up isn't necessary - but does make it more fun... but what is most important is all the delicious scientific vocabulary you use correctly to explain what plants need to grow well... I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Good Luck
