The Marion soil

Project by group mhskeelerspring2018

Info

Explore Does changing the temperature change the speed of germination. Does depth of the seed change the shape or pattern of growth. We will pick one of these questions to test and study.
Research Question Does Marion mi garden soil need fertilizer to have a better germination rate.
Predictions We believe that the soil with Burpee seed starting mix(fertilizer) will have a better germination rate.
Experimental Design We will have two pots of Marion Mi garden soil and two pots of Marion Mi garden soil with Burpee seed starting mix. Both pots have 5 seeds in them. Then see which one will have a better germination rate. We will also water them in on first three days then leave them for three day and then water...
Conclusion Over the 8 days we have been testing Does Marion mi garden soil need fertilizer to have a better germination rate. In the 8 days we have had 4 plants germinate out of the 10 in Marion mi garden soil with fertilizer and 2 plants out of the 10 in just Marion mi soil. This data lets us prove that...

Team,

Well-done! I hope you all enjoyed this team investigation so far! Some comments on your project info/conclusion:

  •  "This data lets us prove that Marion mi soil needs fertilizer to improve the germination rate of the plants." --> Although this seems to follow what you expect/hypothesis, I would avoid the term 'prove'. Rather, this finding 'support' your hypothesis that soils with fertilizer will give higher germination rate.
  • "During this experiment we have picked up more questions than answers like is Marion mi soil the same all around this test may continue for future experiments this was only the tip of the iceberg." --> Exactly! This is how scientists move the research forward. We do experiments, observe carefully, and note down our findings. Later, we see more questions that need to be answered! This never-ending process keep us active and it's fun to do sciences!

Have a wonderful Spring!

    Tabby
    said

    my favorite subjects are science and study skills. P.S I enjoy being called Lord Tabby if you like.

    also when i said you can call me Lord Tabby.You might ask if i'm a villain or not.I'm just going to give the answer,yes i am a villain but i'm not that mean.

    Lord Tabby, a good villain, based on your favorite subjects, can you please tell me what kind of study skills would be useful to get this project done?

    Tabby

    my study skills class is actually a class where i catch up on any missing work in my school.
