Yesterday, we read Grace’s Mystery Seed during our library visit. The story was about a girl called Grace who found a seed. She planted the seed to see what would grow.
Miss Matthews brought in a mystery seed for the class and we spent some time predicting what will grow, just like they did in the book. We touched, smelt, looked at and listened to the seed and made some predictions.
I think it will grow a strawberry – Sara
Watermelon – Jed
Smells like a flower. I think a rose. A red one – Vidal
Avocado seed – Cooper
Something flat because it feels really flat – James
A rose because it smells like a rose- Emily
Lemon – Kuch
Apple because it smells like apple – Awan
It smells like a pear- Ajang
It smells a little like chocolate- Yasha
It’s definitely a pumpkin. It smells like a pumpkin – Dimi
We then collected our data and used a graph to represent our predictions.

“We counted the fish because we wanted to see how many. Because you can’t have too much only a little bit. I counted yabby and put it into my learning journal. In the classroom I showed my book to everyone from my class and we did the fish and used the TV and made a graph”- Ethan
“We counted the fish. because if we didn’t then they might get lost and in a different order. I counted and in my learning journal I put the numbers. We shared in the classroom and made a graph. There were lots of turtles and the yabby” – Jordan
