Fair Tests

Today in science we learnt about fair tests. We started by thinking about how we could answer the question; who is quicker boys or girls. We decided that it wasn’t for to race Mr Salmon against Arabella to find the answer because they were different sizes. Then we thought about other things we could keep the same., for example where the race started from and how each person needed to have the same clothes.

We applied these ideas the the question what do seeds need to be able to grow. We came up with an experiment to test whether they need, water or sunlight, making sure that we kept things the same so that it was fair.

Over the week, we will record the seeds progress to find out conclusively what seeds need to grow.
