After learning about the different parts of a plant, we worked with a partner to dissect a daffodil.
"I didn't know a plant has male and female parts!"
"The pollen is super sticky!"
"The petals are brightly coloured to attract the bees"
We created our own shadow puppets to explore the making of shadows. Through investigation we found out that the closer an object is to the light source, the larger the shadow it casts. This is because it blocks more of the light.
We also found out that not all objects make a shadow.
