Examine a range of native plants from contrasting rainforest and arid environments, observe the amazing adaptations that allow them to grow and survive. In research teams conduct a scientific investigation and complete scientific illustrations, fine tuning skills and making connections between the physical conditions in which plants live and their growth and survival.
Students will conduct a scientific investigation into how environmental conditions affect the growth, survival and adaptation of plants in two contrasting environments (arid and rainforest)
They will complete a scientific illustration by making observations and using scientific measurement tools
Students also consider a testable scientific question, formulate a hypothesis, collect and analyse data to communicate conclusions
