Explore plants go through an interesting process called germination in which they start out as a seed and sprout with the appropriate requirements and weather. They also go through 2 other processes called photosynthesis and cellular respiration which both help the plant grow and spread more seeds to repeated the procceses.
Research Question What amount of water does it take to germinate a plant?
Predictions If a plant is getting a stable amount of water then the plant will be healthy because plants need water for a process called photosynthesis in which they make there food (Glucose) and uses it to make ATP (energy).
Experimental Design Each day while the seed is planted are routine is too water the pea seed bottles with the amount listed on the front ( 3 teaspoons 2 teaspoon 1 teaspoon ). Then record the speed of germination (1 day 2 day 3 day etc.) until that plant has sprouted out of the ground (Germinated).
Conclusion The more water a plant gets the faster the plant seed will germinate because when we gave one of are plant seeds 3 teaspoons then gave two others 2 or 1 teaspoons of water and the 3 teaspoon germinated faster than the other two.This happend because water is an essential part of a life cycle of a plants life. It acts as a ingerident to food and energy for use.The more food and energy the longer the plant will use.
