Module 6: How plants grow

  • Students have their own ideas and explanations about how the world around them works.
  • These ideas may include misconceptions. One such misconception is that plant growth relies on the soil to provide food for plant growth.
  • In this unit children are asked to question this widespread misconception by discussing different historic experiments.
  • Children will learn that science is a dynamic process and that concepts change in the light of new evidence.
