Explore We know that plants go through a process called photosynthesis to turn carbon dioxide into oxygen. Outside of school: We know that plants need sunlight and water to grow. How long is the average lifespan of a plant?
Research Question We want to study how long the diameter of the plant is from leaf to leaf. We came up with this question from our super helpful mentor. It fits because we know that plants grow taller and expand in diameter but we don’t know the ratio of how tall the plants grow vs how wide they grow.
Predictions The one with high fertilizer will have a wider diameter. We think this will happen because they are already taller than the low fertilized plants.
Experimental Design Our plan is to measure how wide the plant is from leaf to leaf in (mm). We will measure every time we measure the height of the plant and make a seperate data table for the width of the plant. We will keep the amount of fertilizer and light constant.
