What do plants need for life and growth?


Watch the video below to see what plants need to grow and then complete the 'fill in the gap' activity on the BBC website.


Click the link below, watch the clips and then complete the quiz.

Where will a plant grow the best?

Extra task - make a poster/leaflet or write a short paragraph about what you have learnt.


Optional  - set up your own investigation at home:

Does light affect growth?

Put 3 plants in different places (window sill, dark cupboard, shadowy corner) and see what happens.  Make a prediction about what you think will happen and record your observations (leaf colour, number of leaves, condition of plant) every couple of days. You could measure the plants at the start and at the end. Remember to water them though.

Cress works well if you have any!
