|Explore||Does changing the temperature change the speed of germination. Does depth of the seed change the shape or pattern of growth. We will pick one of these questions to test and study.|
|Research Question||Does Marion mi garden soil need fertilizer to have a better germination rate.|
|Predictions||We believe that the soil with Burpee seed starting mix(fertilizer) will have a better germination rate.|
|Experimental Design||We will have two pots of Marion Mi garden soil and two pots of Marion Mi garden soil with Burpee seed starting mix. Both pots have 5 seeds in them. Then see which one will have a better germination rate. We will also water them in on first three days then leave them for three day and then water...|
|Conclusion||Over the 8 days we have been testing Does Marion mi garden soil need fertilizer to have a better germination rate. In the 8 days we have had 4 plants germinate out of the 10 in Marion mi garden soil with fertilizer and 2 plants out of the 10 in just Marion mi soil. This data lets us prove that...|

The Marion soil team did a great job working together as a group to identify and communicate detail in how they designed and then actually conducted their investigation. The Marion soil team did a great job working together as a group to identify and communicate detail in how they designed...
i was sick on thursday and friday so i never got to say what i wanted to say. I may be a villain but i would like to say thank you for your help
Well-done! I hope you all enjoyed this team investigation so far! Some comments on your project info/conclusion:
- "This data lets us prove that Marion mi soil needs fertilizer to improve the germination rate of the plants." --> Although this seems to follow what you expect/hypothesis, I would avoid the term 'prove'. Rather, this finding 'support' your hypothesis that soils with fertilizer will give higher germination rate.
- "During this experiment we have picked up more questions than answers like is Marion mi soil the same all around this test may continue for future experiments this was only the tip of the iceberg." --> Exactly! This is how scientists move the research forward. We do experiments, observe carefully, and note down our findings. Later, we see more questions that need to be answered! This never-ending process keep us active and it's fun to do sciences!
Have a wonderful Spring!
hello this is our last day of the project we all would like to thank you for all the help you have done getting our project started and done this is for my whole group thanks -Weston, Wesley,Tabby, and Robert.
My name is Tabby.I enjoy playing video games and have really good grades in marion high school.
It's great to hear that the project is going well as planned. Please keep me updated!! Take a lot of photos!! And lastly, don't hesitate to let me know if you have any questions!
