Year 5 – Germination Experiment
June 10, 2019
Year 5 students were able to go to the science lab this week to start an exciting experiment. They are currently studying about the life cycles of plants, and were learning about germination. They were asked if seeds need light and water to germinate.
Students discussed how we could plan experiments to answer these questions, and importantly, how we could make sure the experiments were fair.
The students decided to test seeds with water and light, seeds with just water and seeds with just light. They discovered that seeds need water and not light to germinate.
