I wonder how a bean grows without soil and how it can grow on a tissue paper? This term we have been learning about science so Kiri gave us a bean to look after, to watch and observe it each day and to take a photo for evidence and to see the difference. I thought that it will very fun to look after the bean and I was so excited to look after my bean but it was actually not fun at all.
I hypothesise that my bean will not grow because it doesn't have enough soil and sunlight to grow.
Firstly I glued my bean observation in my literature book.
Secondly Kiri gave me my bean to grow.
Thirdly I wet a tissue paper.
Fourthly I put my wet tissue in my Petri dish and I named my bean Plum.
Lastly I did my bean observation and took a photo.
On the 9/8/16 the size of the bean was 13mm, the colour of the bean was creamy, it felt smooth and there was no leaves.
My inference was that it needed moisture and sunlight to grow.
On the 26/8/16 the size of the bean was 2 cm and 5 mm the colour was still creamy, it felt lumpy and it had no leaves.
On the 29/8/16 my bean was 2 cm and 5 mm the colour of the bean was green and a little bit of black because of the mold and there were creamy spikey bits.
In conclusion I learned the plants can grow without soil and it can grow on tissue paper.
Hypothesis for next investigation:
I hypothesis for my next investigation that my bean might be able to grow outside on a tissue paper without soil.
