The time travelers

Explore Variables: Independent Variable = The amount of sunlight Dependent Variable = The speed of germination Variables to Control = 1. How much sunlight it gets 2.type of plant 3.amount of time it gets in sunlight/no sunlight 4. type of seed Materials: 1.pea plant 2.paper towel 3.petri dish 4.water 5.light Procedure: 1.Get the materials from the list 2.put the pea on a paper towel in the petri dish 3.Do that again to the second pea 4.put one pea plant under a light 5.put the second pea plant under 3 layers of paper towel so it gets no sunlight. 6.observe the plant for the next 8 days 7.at the end of the 8 days observe the difference
Research Question We came up with the question because we were all curious about how the sunlight actually affected the plants growth so we decided to do something that would answer our question.
Predictions If we plant ten pea plants one with sunlight during the day and one without then the one with sunlight will germinate faster.
Experimental Design 1.Get the materials from the list 2.put the pea on a paper towel in the petri dish 3.Do that again to the second pea 4.put one pea plant under a light 5.put the second pea plant under 3 layers of paper towel so it gets no sunlight. 6.observe the plant for the next 8 days 7.at the end of the 8 days observe the difference
Conclusion Based on our results we believe that peas grow better in the dark than in the light, which was no the results that we expected.
