Counting on Activity
For this game you will need a dice and a collection of small things such as Lego bricks, sticky shapes or dried pasta. You will also need a pencil and paper.
• Take turns.
• Roll a dice. Take that number of pieces of pasta. Write down the number.
• Keep rolling the dice and taking that number of pieces of pasta. But, before you take them, you must write down your new total.
• For example, Sam has 7. She throws 4. She has to work out how many she will have now. She starts counting from seven: eight, nine, ten, eleven. She writes 11.
• You can only take your pieces of pasta if you are right.
• The first person to collect 20 pieces of pasta wins!
Please read the following extract about plants and give the answers to the questions to your family.
All plants grow from seeds. Seeds are produced in by plants, but end up in the soil in many different ways. Some seeds blow from the flower in the wind and land in the soil, some seeds will be eaten by animals and dropped in different places. Some even float in water until they begin to grow and many are put into packets and bought by gardeners.
Seeds are very different in shape and size for many reasons. Some seeds are light so that they can blow in the wind, some are large like a peach stone which is inside the peach and some are small like the seeds on a strawberry.
Many seeds can be eaten. Sunflower seeds or poppy seeds can be eaten on their own or in bread.
1. What do all plants grow from?
2. Name three ways in which seeds move away from their plant.
3. Name a plant whose seeds float and a plant whose seeds fly away.
4. Name two types of seeds that can be eaten.
Go in your garden and see if you can see any seeds on the plants or fruit.
