Can you create a sculpture from natural resources or items around your house?

Think about how you can stick them or join them together without using glue.  Think about how you will balance the items together and what shape you are aiming to create.

Have a go at this science investigation.  If you don't have loom bands, you could use an elastic band, a hair bobble, scrunchie or elastic material.

Can you research and draw the life cycles of your favourite creatures? Think about the type of creature you want to investigate. Will it have live young?  or will the young hatch from eggs?  Will they grow slowly or use metamorphosis?

 

Plants also have a life cycle.

Can you draw the life cycle of a plant?  You could plant a packet of seeds or a bean in a transparent plastic cup and watch the process take place.  Take photos of the different stages. You could have a race to see which bean can grow the fastest.
