|Explore||They need water and light to grow, also we discovered germination and depending on the plant how much water the plant needs to germinate faster, lastly questions that interest us is how much water it takes for a plant to germinate faster.|
|Research Question||How much water does it take for a plant to be fully germinated. We came up with it by just really digging in what to do between light and water and we thought water would be best. It fits it because it's about germination and that's what were testing someway.|
|Predictions||Our prediction is If we give the plant more water, then it will germinate faster.|
|Experimental Design||To see how long it takes for the plant to germinate.|
|Conclusion||What claim can we make from our experiment? What are possible explanations for our results? How do the data we collected and our reasoning with scientific ideas support our claim? What future experiments could be done to expand on the results of this experiment?|
|Student Level(s)||Middle School Students (grades 6,7,8)|
As this research project is now in the final stages of wrapping-up, we wish to thank everyone who participated in this inquiry; the students, mentors, teachers and others behind the scenes. We appreciate all of your efforts and contributions to this online learning community.
Scientific exploration is a process of discovery that can be fun! There are many unanswered questions about plants just waiting for new scientists to consider, investigate, and share.
After the end of the session, we will be updating the platform and archiving groups and projects, after which time new updates/posts will not be able to be added to projects or groups. Please come back and visit the PlantingScience Project Gallery anytime to view this project in the future. You can search the Gallery by keyword, team name, topic, or school name.
Good bye for now.
The PlantingScience team
You are very welcome, and thanks for letting me participate. Enjoy the last couple months of school!
hello i just wanted to say thank you for working with us on our planting science project i know everyone had fun with this project it was fun to kind of watch our plant grow. not only did i want to say thank you but i also wantted to say Goodbye!!!
Hi Ruby! I know I havent talked much but I do appreciate your help. Thank you so much! bye and have a great week!
Thank you so much for helping us this was so much fun! You helped us very much and i am very happy that we got you as our scientist! You're amazing! But sadly this is goodbye so bye!! Thanks again.
It’s great to see that teams from your school are wrapping up and posting conclusions. Enjoy the final stages of your project, and feel free to post any final comments or questions you have for your mentors.
Excellent! I was mostly just trying to prod you make a graph, but it sounds like you did that so well done! Nice write-up, and I'm glad you were able to figure it all out.
I must commend you on your excellent note-taking skills! It's key to take well-organized and consistent notes in science and it seems like you all have that down. Do you plan to make a line chart to demonstrate how each treatment progressed throughout your study (e.g., a line for each treatment on the same graph)? It would accompany your table well, and show your results in a way that is easier and faster to visualize.
Hi Teams and Mentors! First thank you so much for helping us out in this project. Today students began to update you with their explanations/conclusions for their investigations. Tomorrow, we begin spring break. My intention was originally that we would be done at this point, however, we are going to be wrapping-up after break. Please feel free to add any feedback on their conclusions, and they will view it when they return.
Thank you again!
Those look like some happy chickpeas! So, is the treatment with less water still not germinating?
We are just giving a update and there are plants that are making good progress!
Team! I love that you are adding pictures...but I don't think we are really seeing what you want to show. Try adding the pictures one at a time, so everyone can see them :)
We are giving all of the plants the same amount of time, and we are not giving up on the less watered ones, and i think we are ending this experiment tuesday because we have half days wendsday and thursday and then spring break!
let me know if you can see the plant! my screen is showing that it is only showing me but i hope that you can also see the plant!
