Ok, so I'm feeling a bit brain dead (and it's only Monday!) and am going round in circles trying to plan tomorrow's science. Basically I want to do a science investigation to find out "Do plants need light to grow?" I want the kids to select (in pairs) what equipment they need from what's available (cress seeds, plastic trays to grow it in, kitchen roll to grow it on, pipettes for watering), and decide how they're going to make it a fair test and where they are going to put the seeds (e.g. hoping they'll plant 2 pots and put one on windowsill and one somewhere dark). I was going to give them a booklet to complete (with what we are finding out/what we need/what we are going to do/our prediction/results/conclusion in it). I'm trying to let them make some decisions so I can assess their AT1 skills. Do you think this is too spoon fed?? Or is there enough independence there? The last science investigations we did were too heavily teacher led I felt. What do you think? I feel like I'm over-thinking it.
