A simple science experiment about Living Things that introduces scientific investigation procedures to young students or those that have not yet attempted such investigations.
This experiment asks students to think about how we know if something is an animal or a plant - what characteristics to plants have in common? If animals can be so different from each other, how do we know they are all animals?
This experiment is differentiated
with activities to keep your fast finishers busy, and comes with full Teacher's Notes
that explain both the experiment and the science behind it so you will feel confident to help your students explore this topic and they will love doing it!
The Investigation Record your students can use to record their experiment and their learning is available to download for free here:
