Holly and I for our project did the oldman saltbush. We made our model, our diagram made up our experiment and did our powerpoint. Because holly was away for most of the weeks I had to do most of the work but when she came back for the last couple of days we worked really well. We did separate things and got all our work done. Our powerpoint had lots of information and a Glossary. We didn’t get to present so if did get a chance to do that i could be something to improve on.
1. the oldman salbush has large roots so it can pull in more water
2. the oldman saltbush also has a fine root system that is as fine as hair that soaks up the morning dew.
3. The oldman saltbush has grey leaves so it doesn’t loose as much moisture as green leaves
- I understand that the oldman saltbush has grey leaves because it lives mainly in the desert so it doesn’t loose as much moisture which is a good thing
2.I understand that its called a saltbush because it produces salt in its stems
does the saltbush use salt for an adaptation?
The most important things i have learnt is the science behind how animals survive in the desert. All my other years the wasn’t much reasoning behind it. Adaptations tell why something does something and it has reasoning to it. I learnt this by looking in depth and using skimming and scanning and other techniques that i have learnt in class this term. With what i have learnt i am going to drag it into year 7 science and hope guides me on a little path.
with this reflection i have told you some the adaptations of the oldman saltbush the most important things i have learnt .How i learnt them and how i could use them. also a quick summary of our project and what happened with that.
