Many students think of the scientific method as a step-by-step process that all scientists follow in order. But real research is rarely so neat and tidy…it is really more of a research cycle or spiral because things you learn in one step can change your ideas about what you’ve already done or about next steps.
It is OK to change your thinking! We encourage you to go back and edit things you write in this section at any time as your ideas change. Just remember to ADD to your entries (put new stuff at the top) and don’t delete or overwrite anything you or other students in your group have written.

|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.|
|Grade Level||Middle School Students (grades 6,7,8)|
