The circle of life

Project by group svhspererafall2021

Explore Most of the information we know now have come from past science classes where they taught about the plant cycle and the parts of a plant. We know the basic information about plants, but not as much about different types of plants.
Research Question Does the color of a pea seed affect the seed's germination success?
Predictions The color may tell how healthy the seed may be and may determine which will grow better and faster. The different colors may as well make the flower's colors different and visual appearance differ from each other.
Experimental Design We would need pea seeds of different colors, separate identical containers with soil for each seed, some where with access to sunlight, and water for this experiment. The steps of the experiment are to first, gather needed seeds of different colors and out them in separate identical containers (at least 2 different colored seeds). Then, give each seed the same resources and observe the state of each separate plant. We are going to gather data from doing this every few days to check to growth and development of the individual plants. After, hopefully the plants sprout and when that happens we are going to compare and contrast the experiments to either prove or debunk our hypothesis. In the end, it leaves us with making our conclusions for our conducted experiment.
Conclusion In conclusion, from comparing both the green and brown seeds it turns out that the color can have some affect of how the plant germinates. For example, the light green seeds had seemed to have sprouted 3 out of 6 in one vial while the brown seeds had sprouted 2 out of 6 in its vial. Though the light green seeds sprouted at a slower rate they seemed more healthy then the brown seeds.
