Refer to observations made as cress has been growing or watch the video below of cress gowing.

What did we see first?

Where did the plant come from?

What must we give the plant for it to grow?


Now think about your own experiment.

Are all the plates of cress the same?

How are they different? (if they are!)

Why was this group more successful than that one?

Pull out an individual cress plant and show on the visualiser or use a magnifying glass.

What parts can you see?

Children to draw and label a fully grown cress plant.
