This week, we are learning about how plants need a suitable temperature to help them to grow. What does the word suitable mean? What do you think will happen if you put one seed in a warm area and one seed in the cool fridge? I've tried this for you at home with 2 sunflower seeds.
I planted the seeds 2 weeks (14 days) ago and I gave them both:
- the same soil
- the same amount of water
- the same sized container
What has happened after two weeks? Which one was placed in my fridge?
Can you try something like this at home?
PS. I am going to grow this sunflower for Yellow Class and plant it in our school garden in a few weeks' time when it is stronger and taller!
