I thoroughly enjoyed learning alongside the Grade 4 and 5 students as they inquired about plant adaptations in Term 1.
My first post included our work on venus fly traps and the lianas that took over the tree in the intermediate shared area.
The students added writing pieces to the bulletin board after our sessions in the library.
After exploring adaptations caused by lack of sunlight and nutrient-rich soil, we moved onto water and seed dispersal adaptations.
Part 2: Lilies and Mushrooms
We watched a few videos about the water lilies and then worked in small groups to make the water lilies and pads.
Each group member made a specific part of the plant adaptation:
Once again we examined a few videos about puffball fungi before making our own.
The mushrooms were constructed by:
We used the tree stump props from the drama studio as bases for the mushrooms. The students made extra bright and beautiful mushrooms for fun to add to the display.
