Energy ~ Fair test plant growth.

31st May 2019

As part of our World Around Us, we have been exploring the topic of energy.

Today we took part in a ‘fair test’ scientific investigation to see what conditions plants need in order to grow and survive.

Each group was given a different set of conditions (variables) to test. In a fair test only 1 variable can be changed. So the 3 different experiments we will be investigating are;

  • Water, heat, light and compost.
  • No water, heat, light and compost.
  • Water, heat, no light and compost. 

We have made predictions as to what we think will happen to our seeds and we will keep checking our pots over the next few weeks.
