Our First Science Experiment

We talked about the scientific process.  I wanted the students to use the process to gain full understanding of it.  The scientific process is listed below (in bold).

Question:  Can a seed grow without real sunlight?

Hypothesis (prediction):  We had several students predict yes and several predict no.  We listed their names on our experiment sheet.

Test:  The students received pinto bean seeds to place in a container with some gravel and water.  We watered the bean seeds every other day.

Observations:  We recorded our data by drawing what we observed in our seed containers each day.

Conclusion:  After talking about our last observation, students agreed that the bean seeds sprouted and were growing!

Way to go first grade scientists!
