In First Class we’ve been learning about what plants need to grow. We devised an experiment to see what would happen if we took away one of the elements necessary for a plant to grow. We used cress seeds for our experiment.

We planted four pots of cress seeds:

Number 1: water and sunlight.

Number 2:  water, no sunlight.

Number 3: sunlight, no water.

Number 4: water and partial sunlight.

These were the results:

Number 1: Grew well with tall green shoots.

Number 2: Grew tall but the leaves were yellow.

Number 3: Did not grow at all.

Number 4: Grew at angle towards the sun.

We are going to see if the yellow leaves turn green if we leave it in the sun for a few days. We’ll keep you updated!
