Amazing Plant Facts

   

Did you know that some plants are carnivorous?  This means they need to eat meat to survive.  They eat insects and even small animals like frogs.  There are over 700 different types (species) of carnivorous plants found around the world.

Now have a go at growing some plants of your own.

If you have a garden and some seeds have a go at sowing some seeds today (or over the coming week).  I recommend nasturtiums, sunflowers, pumpkins, peas or beetroot.  All these have quite large seeds which are easy for the children to handle.  Let me know how you get on.  If we get back to school before the end of the summer term then we'll have a go at growing some seeds in school. 

If you don't have any seeds (or can't get hold of any seeds)  Try growing some plants using the vegetable scraps that you throw away.  Watch the video below to find out how it is done.
