The Year 4 students have completed a unit on information report writing. They had a number of weeks to research a plant native to another country and write an information report in their own words. They initially learnt how to research on google by entering only key words, and learnt how do identify trustworthy websites. They then used graphic organisers to sort out their relevant and irrelevant information. Finally, they wrote a good copy of an information report about their chosen plant. Students learnt about why certain plants naturally grow in different countries and why not others. They learnt about the weather conditions needed in order for their chosen plant to survive. They also researched about any cultural or medicinal significance that the plant has to its native country. Here are some pictures that showcases their journey through all of the steps.
