PLANTS (Unit 2, Year 5)

Today we will start with a new topic during our Science Lessons. During a couple of weeks we will talk about PLANTS. First of all it would be good to start with a THINKING ROUTINE: THE TRAFFIC LIGHTS, we will use this to check what you remember or know about plants.




We can watch a video to introduce the topic. Please during the video we will deal with a new THINKING ROUTINE: HOT WORDS, write down in your notebook important words (just words) about the video.
