Today you are going to recognise and use square numbers and cube numbers. Let's remind ourselves by looking at the link below. Watch the video and try the quiz.
This afternoon you are going to ‘paint with chlorophyll’. You may recognise the word from some of the videos you have watched so far. All green plants contain a green coloured pigment that we are going to use to add colour and texture to some artwork.
CHLOROPHYLL PAINTINGS: INCORPORATING ART IN SCIENCE
Chlorophyll paintings are a fun and creative way to integrate art and science as you learn about plants, the process of photosynthesis and how a plant makes its own food. Friday you will make leaf rubbings and today you will paint pictures with chlorophyll.
HOW TO MAKE CHLOROPHYLL PAINTINGS

For this project you will need:
To make the paintings:
