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.

|Owner||LOS Tinder Fall 2020|
|Explore||Don't set them on fire, they need water, sunlight, and maybe fertilizer (manure) and they give us fresh oxygen.|
|Research Question||Will the amount of water given to the plant each day affect its growth and health?|
|Predictions||We think the one with more water will grow more.|
|Experimental Design||We will fill 2 egg cartoon sized thing with backyard soil and put a pea seed in each egg cartoon sized thing. Each day at 2:50 we will water each plant. The first plant we will water 1 teaspoon of lukewarm water and another plant with 1 1/2 teaspoon of lukewarm water for about 2.5 - 3 weeks. We will record our discoveries every day also at 2:50. Seed 1 is the 1/4 teaspoon seed and seed 2 is the 1/2 teaspoon seed.|
|Conclusion||Our conclusion is that we are still unsure of how much water the plant needs because Tobys seed 2 didn't grow at all and Yoavs seed 1 didn't grow at all and Benjamins seeds both grew but Seed 2 grew more.|
