2nd Grade Primary

Colegio Puertoblanco

         Our project consists of a series of activities, including experiments and exhibitions all about the power of plants.  We will show the capacity they have to grow and move in response to stimuli such as light, water, gravity and touch: tropic and nastic movements.  We will also demonstrate how they can prevent erosion.  We will explain the medicinal uses of some plants.  Finally, we will describe the Fibonacci sequence and how it can be seen in the number of flower petals and the spirals in fruits and flowers.
