Learning By Topic KS2: Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Science

In Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Hard Luck, the reader learns that Roderick conducted a science project called “What type of music do flowers like best?” and it wasn’t very successful! However did you know that some studies have shown that playing music to plants does promote faster and healthier growth?! Do some research to see why this may be. Then carry out your own experiment where you plants seeds in two pots, labelling them pot 1 and pot 2. Place them in the same spot in your garden and ensure they have an equal amount of sunlight and water, every day take pot 1 and put it in front of a speaker and play some music. Observe what happens! Write up both experiments. Top Tip: you can find some free KS2 experiment writing templates online.
