What do plants need?

We started an interesting discussion about what plants need. We had some similar ideas but some children also had very different ideas.

We all agreed they need water but we weren’t sure about sun and shade.

Do plants need sun?

Do plants need being talked too?

Do they need horse poo? If they do, why?

What about gravity?

We ‘planted’ some broad bean seeds in plastic bags on wet paper towel. We are keeping a diary to keep track of all the changes we can see. We also put seeds around the school in different light and dark conditions. We even put one in the milk fridge!
