The Story of the Little Mole...
We have been learning about seed dispersal. We were excited to hear that some animals eat the seeds then when the seeds come out the other end they grow in a new place. Who ever though!
We now know how a sycamore seed travels, we made a paper version to see how it travels. They stayed in the air a long time!
We had some seeds we had to try and match them with the name of the plant, tricky!
One week later, the seeds are growing!
Planting our beans
Well done Oliver. VIP this week. I wonder who it will be next week.
How to make a paper helicopter that flies
To help us to understand seed dispersal we will make a paper helicopter just like a maple or sycamore seed. Where does it go? How far does it travel?
Look at the seeds. What helps them move away from the plants and trees?
Seed Song - How Seeds Move - Seed Dispersal
Listen to the song... Why do the seeds need to get away from the plants and trees?
