Plants and how they grow

Plants and How they Grow


We have been learning about plants and what the role is of each part...




Experiment : What do plants need to live?

We know that plants need light and water to live but we wanted to know more so set up an experiment where one plant has light and water, 1 had light but NO water, 1 has water but NO light and 1 has NO light and NO water.

We planned a test and discussed what we think might happen...



How the plants looked at the start...



Here are some pictures of the plants 2 weeks after we started the experiment...



Which plant is which?

Which ones had water... or sun.... or both.... or neither?

Why do you think that?


How have the plants changed over time? What is the same? What is different?

Why do you think the changes happened?


Keep checking back for updates as to find out if you were correct, how they have changed over the next couple of weeks and to find out why they have grown like this...
