We have been developing our understanding of scientific vocabulary using our new science dictionaries.
We have been carrying out fair tests in Science to investigate the question- Does age affect your reaction times? We collected our results today and will analyse them next week.
Gestation Gurus- Pattern Seeking
We played a game to see if we could work out the different gestation periods for different mammals. We learned that gestation is the process by which a mammal grows a baby and is the time between conception and birth. Once we had worked out the correct gestation periods for different mammals, we were challenged to spot any patterns in the results. We realised that there was a link between the size of the animal and how long it carried a baby for before giving birth.
In most cases, the larger the animal the longer period of gestation. Therefore, the smaller the animal, the shorter gestation time.
We then carried out our own research to investigate if other animals followed this pattern and relationship.
