Rocket Seeds

Last term Gardening Club took part in an investigation. We planted 100 seeds which had been on Earth for 6 months and 100 seeds which had been in space with Tim Peake for 6 months. But we didn’t know which was which. 100 were in the blue packet and 100 were in the red packet. Each week we recorded different things; for example:

How many true leaves there were

The percentage of seedlings alive

Some people thought that the blue seeds had gone to space because they looked brown and twisted and the percentage that germinated was lower. Others thought the red seeds had gone to space because they looked greener.

Two weeks ago, we watched a video of Tim Peake. He told us that the blue seeds had gone to space!
