Info

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?

Updates

Get to know your team’s scientist mentor, who will encourage and guide you through the scientific process of discovery. The more you share your ideas and research info, the more your mentor can help. You may also hear from a scientist mentor liaison who will be helping all the teams in your class.

Farewell and Best Wishes
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.
Warm regards,
The PlantingScience team

Looks like you are in the final stages of your projects.
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.

Hi Friyayers,

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.

Best,

Ruby

Hi Friyayers,

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.

Best,

Ruby

    Hey Ruby,

     Thank you so much for your kind compliment! We made out graphs and we made them bar graphs! But we would like to share our explanation with you! The more water the faster the plants germinated. The more water only took 1 day to germinate and the right amount took 4 days and the little amount took all 8 days! The more water was green and tall and very health, the right amount was short and some were green, and the little amount had sprouts at first but then died. The reason it did that was that we were paying close attention looking and asking questions. This supports it because it was right on by having very close and good observations. This did have us stumped once or twice. We got it solved and got very good results! 

    Was that a good explanation?

      From, 

        The Friyayers!

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!

Hi Friyayers,

Those look like some happy chickpeas! So, is the treatment with less water still not germinating?

    Hi Ruby,

    Yea! We took the healthy ones home and no the less water ended up having a couple green sprouts and then died a week later.

Hey Ruby, 

 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 :)

Hi Ruby,

 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!

    Hi Friyayers,

    Okay. That sounds great. I'm looking forward to hearing about what happens over the weekend.

    Hi Rachel,

    Thanks for sending the picture. I can see the very corner of the chickpeas in one of the pictures. So cool! Germination is always my favorite part of gardening. I love it when those little lifeforms spring to being. So, what are your results? Which germinated the fastest? Or, did they all seem to germinate at about the same rate?

    Best,

    Ruby

    Hey Ruby!

     I know its a very cool experiment! Are results so far it that with more water they germinate fast! Sadly the one with less water is slowly dying we think....but we are happy that at least 3 of them are somewhere were we can see them sprouting like both of the more water are green and getting tall the one with the right amount is just slower! But that is our results!

     From,

         The Friyayers!

    Hi Rachel,

    Thanks for the update! Very cool indeed! Are you allowing your seeds that didn't get much water more time to grow? Or, did you give up on them? How long will you give them before you stop your experiment?

    Thanks!

    Rachel - Next time, upload one picture at a time. I think they will be easier to view that way.
