Setting up the Garden

Students established their Baggie Garden experiments today, setting up their experiment bags and one or more experimental control bags.  We began class with a brief overview of the day, and then students worked in groups to write a detailed experimental procedure.  Once their procedure was reviewed and teacher-approved, the students assembled their baggie gardens, using the resources available to test their hypotheses.

For groups testing temperature as their manipulated variable:

  • Freezer -10C
  • Refrigerator 9C
  • Room 23C
  • Warm box 30C

Tomorrow we will make our first experimental observations and then discuss how to organize how to collect and organize data relevant to each group’s research question.
