PeKA Science Form


EXPERIMENT PLANNING Name: Class: Date:16 Jun 2008 1.0 Title: Stages in the germination of seeds 2.0 Aim: To study the conditions needed for seed germination 3.0 The hypothesis I am testing: A seed will germinate if there is water, air and suitable temperature All the variables that could affect my investigation: -Conditions for seed germination -type of seed - germination of seed. Group members:


C12a C12b


4.0 a) Variables I decide to change ( Manipulated variable): Conditions for seed germination - presence of air & water only b) The variable that will change as a result ( Responding variable): -seed germination c) The variable that I will keep the same(Controlled/ Fixed variable): -Type of seed 5.0 Equipment I will need to use: C12d

Materials: green peas ,cotton, cooled boiled water, labeling paper Apparatus: test tubes, refrigerator, test tube rack, thread 6.0 Brief outline of how I will carry out the experiment: Diagram: C12g
