Part Two
1. After seven days the students will analyze their results in their groups. They will write
up their results, conclusion, and if their prediction was correct as a group.
2. Class discussion: what each group found, was there similarities, differences. Why do
they think that one germinated better than another? What are the potential flaws with
this experiment?
