Temperature

This week, we are learning about how plants need a suitable temperature to help them to grow.  What does the word suitable mean? What do you think will happen if you put one seed in a warm area and one seed in the cool fridge?  I've tried this for you at home with 2 sunflower seeds.

 

I planted the seeds 2 weeks (14 days) ago and I gave them both:

  • the same soil
  • the same amount of water
  • the same sized container

 

What has happened after two weeks? Which one was placed in my fridge? 

 

Can you try something like this at home?

PS. I am going to grow this sunflower for Yellow Class and plant it in our school garden in a few weeks' time when it is stronger and taller!
