Plant Fair reflection and stuff
So... last week in science class, we started investigating plants. But instead of teaching it using normal methods, Mr. G decided to let us present what we found in our research in a science fair sort of setting.
My team researched plants in different soil types. That's also what our lab was about. We found that Plants need Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium to function normally. We also learned that sunflowers are hardy plants and that barrel cactus's like slightly moist soil. Another topic of research was about wilting and over-watering plants.
In our lab, we planted radishes in 6 different soils: gravel, beach sand, long jump sand, loam, mud, and random dirt. The radishes grew best in the sands an the loam. They ended up drowning in the soils with poor drainage-- gavel, mud, and dirt.
I really liked the way our project went, and I think it was good to have kids learn from other kids. Everything went really well with our experiment and project. This is definitely a project to have next year's class do!!
