Grow a Plant Experiment
 
See if you can grow a plant by doing this experiment.

Materials you will need:

•Seeds
•Water
•Sun Light
•Potting Soil
•Dark Cupboard
•Two small flower pots

 
 
Steps

1. Take the two flower pots and fill them with the potting soil - leaving about an inch from the top of the pots unfilled. 

2. Make a hole in the center of the potting soil with your thumb (this is where you will place the seeds) in both pots.

3. Drop a few seeds in the hole in each pot and cover the hole with the soil.

4. Water one of the flower pots with some water (careful not to over water) and place this flower pot in a warm sunny spot.

5. Do not water the second flower pot and place it in a cool dark cupboard.

6. Leave the flower pots for a few days and watch to see what happens to both pots.

How is the flower pot in the cupboard getting on?

How is the flower pot in the sunny spot getting on?

The watered flower pot grows because the water has been absorbed by the seeds and the sunlight has helped it along. Be sure to water your growing plant every couple of days so that it does not dry up and fade away.
