Inspired by Ag. Science?
St Mary’s PS Senior class report –
What inspired you in today’s ‘Pulsing into Pulses’ session
for National Science Week?
STAGES of GROWTH
Nick B Something that inspired me today is how a seed turns into a plant
Erika One that that inspired me was the stages in growing pulses
Grace I was amazed at how you could see the seed shell [coat] came off
Ebony I have learnt that if the roots bend that bit breaks off
Jacob – I was surprised that some grew big, some grew small and some didn’t grow at all.
Toby - One thing that amazed me is that mine didn’t grow and then the day it grew about 4cm long [in the soil with fertiliser]
Zachery I am surprised that my plant was so tall
SEEDS as FOOD
Simon - Seeds have food inside them.
Chloe - I am surprised that seeds have food in them.
Geordie - I am surprised that the plants don’t need that much water to grow
No name I am surprised that plants [when seeds] don’t need that much sunlight
Lachie I didn’t know before that you could use river sand as a soil.
SALT can be a KILLER
Ian - One thing that has made me think more about farmers is how invisible and hard-to-detect things, like salt, can affect crops so easily.
Daniel I have learnt that it doesn’t take much salt to kill a plant
Liam I didn’t know that salt did kill plants
Zac L I have learnt that salt kills plants
Noah I have learnt that salt kills plants
Zac G I didn’t know that salt could kill plants
Xavier I didn’t think that my soil had salt in it or that salt kills plants
Finn I thought that it was interesting that salt could make the plants fail.
Petria I had done the exact amount of water and still nothing happened [because of the salt in the soil]
Luke I learnt today that if plants are well cared for they grow much better than on a farm. [?]
Texas One thing I thought of is that could get more seeds to plant in a pot
Brianna I have learnt that if your plant has not grown, it does not matter that they didn’t grow [& why matters]
Ollie I was happy to find out that it [my seeds not sprouting] was not my fault
Jade I was amazed that there are all types of soils for all kinds of seeds
