Explore The liquids we will use are orange juice ,water, and milk.
Research Question How does the type of liquid effect how fast a red radish germinates.
Predictions If I put a seed in a petri dish with a piece of cardboard and add water than it will germinate the fastest.
Experimental Design Procedure: Step 1: Get materials. Step 2: put wet paper towels ( one with each type of liquid ) in petri dishes. Step 3: On the first day, add 5 milliliters of liquid ( one with water, one with water and orange juice , and one with orange juice) to each individual dish. Step 4: Every day after add 1 milliliter of liquid to each seed Step 5: Add ten seeds to each of the three petri dishes. Step 6: let seeds sit overnight. Step 7: observe and record seed growth by measuring the length of each root and stem. Repeat every day.
Conclusion Claim: Round radish seeds grow best when watered with regular water, most other liquids make them mold. Evidence: The seeds that were in water grew the best, the longest root out of all the seeds reached 20mm. For the orange juice mixed with water, the longest root was 10mm. The seeds that were watered with plain orange juice did not begin germinating. There was a 10mm difference between water and the mix, and a 20mm difference between the water and orange juice.
