I will show
children broad beans and cress seeds. We will discuss difference
in shape and size and what seeds need to grow.
What do seeds need to grow? - Water and sunlight. What do the seeds
look like? What colour are they? What shape are they?
I will tell
the class that we will be working with the cress seeds today and
the broad beans in a few days time. Every child in the class will
plant some cress seeds, either on cotton wool or in compost.
I will bring
each child up to the round table. The child will sprinkle some seeds
on to the dampened cotton-wool which is on a lid (reusing margarine
tub lids.) The lid will then be placed inside a plastic bag and
placed on the window sill.
will be placed in empty egg cartons (reusing.) The children will
sprinkle a few seeds into the egg sections and cover with compost.
will carry out daily observations on the growth of the seeds. A
pictorial record will be kept to record the growth of the seeds
