Our Science question was: 'What are the best conditions for plants to grow?'
We decided to test this by putting cress seeds in different environments. These were: the freezer (no light, no warmth and no water), on the windowsill (light, warmth and water), on the windowsill with no water (light, warmth, no water), in a box (water, warmth and no light) and on the windowsill with an ice pack (light, water, no warmth). This way, we will know which variable has affected the results the most.
We predict that the pot in the freezer will be the least successful because it has none of the conditions which plants need to grow.
To make this investigation fair, we used the same amount of kitchen roll in each group, the same size cup, the same amount of water, the same amount of seeds and we will top-up the moisture at the same time each day, in each group. It is also important that we measure the seeds' growth at the same time in each group to ensure that they have had the same amount of time to grow.
