Grow plants—without dirt! Sprout seeds, put them in the seed baskets, place seed baskets in the water-filled flasks, and watch your plants climb the trellis as they grow! The Gardening Diary includes hydroponics experiments and history, including information about the Aztecs' amazing floating gardens!
The growth of seeds provide many experiments that allow students to make scientific observations over an extended period of time. The results lend themselves well to graphing.
We've found that pea, cat-grass, and radish seeds all sprout quickly and grow well. Here are just a few inquiries you can explore with seeds.
Before you start the experiment, write down what you think will happen. You might turn out to be right or wrong. That's great. Science is all about finding out how and why things work as well as why they don't work.
A good scientist is a good observer. Look closely at your sprouts every day to track their progress. Write down your observations in a science journal. Take pictures, and measure the results. Your eyes might tell you a plant looks bigger, but you'll only know for sure if you measure it with a calibrated tool like a ruler.
