We are investigating a problem in our classroom: our plants are not growing as we expected!
The most important part of research is asking questions before you investigate. Ishanvi, Grace and Chloe have recorded their questions here:
Ishanvi, Grace and Chloe then used some library books to help with their questioning. These library books were very useful:
- The Gardening Book by Jane Bull. J635BUL
- Cool Stuff the Grow by Stephanie Turnbull. J635TUR
- Rocks and Soil by Peter Riley. J552RIL
- Grow It Eat It J635GRO
Here are some photos from the books. Can you read the pages to research the answer to our problem?
Have you got a question which will help us with our research thinking? Write it in the comments below.
