Curriculum Link: Plants – how seeds grow into mature plants and the requirements that plants have to grow and stay healthy.
Earth Grass is an endearing and beautifully illustrated story for children aged 5-7 sets the scene for science investigations about seeds and plants.
The stories do not have satisfactory endings and the characters are left with a problem to solve. After doing some appropriate investigations in science lessons, children will be able to use their knowledge to write a happy ending to the story.
