Information and suggested gardening projects aimed at younger children. The projects are divided between possible indoor and outdoor and cover activities like collecting and counting insects, building a wormery and painting flower pots.
This resource should enable a child to:
record and display simple weather observations in systematic way using graphs, charts and common meteorological symbols
study weather variations during the year and their influence on plants, animals and humans
use analysis of weather recordings to begin to associate simple descriptions of clouds, amount of cloud cover, wind direction and other conditions with particular types of weather; make and test weather predictions
use simple equipment to observe and record weather phenomena
Suggestions for use: Materials required for each component are clearly listed. The activities need a little planning but they are very practical and should engage the pupils.
