Two weeks ago the students in 4KJ formed inquiry groups for our new topic, Plants in Action. To begin our investigations, we planted seeds in a snaplock bag. You can read about it here.
There were no noticeable changes after the first couple of days of observation. However, when we returned from our Maldon camp last week, we saw that our seeds had started growing!
The photos below show the growth of our broad beans and long beans.

TUESDAY 6TH AUGUST 2013
My plants are making a big changes right now.
Here are the changes I have noticed since last week.
- From one of our broad beans there is a really big root which is about 6cm long.
- From the same broad bean, a big shoot is growing from the root on the side of the seed. It is about 3cm long.
- The long beans aren’t changing that much, but some of them are growing really long roots.
- One of the broad beans has been very smart and hidden under the cotton wool.
