Plants

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!
