JK’s Connect Science and Literacy

During Investigative Research time one afternoon, the question, “What do you know about ‘seeds’ or ‘planting’?” was posed to the JK children.

As their thoughts, ideas and theories were discussed, a chart, which many engaged in, became a ‘work in progress’ which they will revisit throughout this investigation.

Drawing on prior experiences with seeds/plants, the children’s interest and knowledge in this topic, and a reading of the fairy tale, ‘Jack & the Beanstalk’, the natural progression was: “Let’s plant ‘pole beans’ and ‘bush peas’ and see what we can observe, discover and document, shall we?”

The students began their very own ‘Planting Observations’ journal, which they will sketch in and use to describe their experiences and observations from seed to plant.
