Seed Science – Germination and Growth

As part of our Science topic about plants, Year 3 set up an investigation to test what plants need in order to germinate and then to grow successfully.

We planted some cress in cotton wool, sand and soil, watered them and waited.

After two days, this is how they looked. All had started to germinate.

After a week, the results were quite different.  We used these results to work out what they needed.
