Learning about Plants with Senior Kindergarten

Construction paper cut and coloured to look like different plants, showing the location where each is grown

As part of their transdisciplinary theme ‘Sharing the Planet’, the Senior Kindergarten students have been using their research skills to find out which plants grow above, below and on the ground. They discovered that big fruits and vegetables like watermelons and pumpkins grow on the ground because they are too heavy to grow high in trees. Hard fruit like apples grow in trees because if they fall, they won’t get damaged. And finally, no green vegetables grow under the ground – only brown potatoes, orange carrots and purple radishes because only plants that are exposed to the sun are green. You can see their creations below.
