Class 4 - Science - Trying to grow LIFE!!!

Class: Mr Carruthers - Class 2 Year: 2019 - 2020

In science, we’ve been learning about living things and their habitats; looking at MR GRENS and the 7 prerequisites for life; and looking at the 5 different kingdoms of life (animal, plant, fungi, protists, and prokaryote).

We have decided to carry out an experiment to see if we can grow life and, importantly, to test which conditions are best for growing life.

We used a control of dry bread then variables of; wet bread, bread with protein powder on, and finally bread with antibacterial hand gel.  The results may take a while, but we are hoping to have grown life by the end of the week.  Stay tuned to find out more.....
