This past week, our “little scientists” began an investigation to learn whether the position a lima bean is planted will affect the growth and direction of the roots. After planting four beans, in four different positions, our “little scientists” observed the growth of the beans over the course of a week.
This upcoming week, the 5th grade will share-out their lab results and discuss responses to our investigative question! Curious to know the answer? Check in with your child to see if the position of a lima bean does affect the growth and direction of the roots.
