Early last week we measured our bulb plants with unifix cubes. We measured, counted, and compared!
We also began to learn that scientists conduct experiments by asking questions and testing out predictions. As a group we generated a whole list of possible experiments and voted on 4 to actually test out.
Experiment A: What will happen if we plant a bulb and instead of giving it water we give it oil?
Experiment B: What will happen if we plant half of a bulb?
Experiment C: What will happen if put a bulb in a cup of water without any soil?
Experiment D: What will happen if we plant a bulb and put it in a box?
After taking some time to design our experiments we took some time to think about our predictions and if we think the bulb will still grow.
