We decided to see if a seed needs water, light and soil to grow so we got six glass jars some soil, paper towels and a tin to keep out light. We left the seeds for a week and these were the results.
The one with no water didn’t grow at all because seeds need water to grow.
The seed with no light grew because seeds don’t need light to start growing.
The one with no soil grew because seeds don’t need soil to start growing.
We compared them with seeds that had water, soil and light. These were the ‘control’ seeds. They started growing a little.
All in all it was a fun experiment and all the class enjoyed it.
