How do plants grow?

Last week during the science lesson we learned about plants. We were divided into groups. First we discussed what we understand by the word ‘plant’. Then we learned the different parts of a plant. We also noticed that plants can grow in different places. So to try it out, within our groups, we discussed where we can put the plants. Finally it was time for us to experiment. Every student had a plastic cup, some cotton wool and different seeds. After we put the seeds in the cups, we poured some water. In the end we put the cups in the different places that we had decided earlier. As the days pass we are observing the plants to see which ones grow faster, while taking short notes. What do you think the plants need to grow big and green? Sunlight or Darkness? We can’t wait to find out!
