Seeds Experiment from “Teach Peace”

In Mr. Anderson’s science class, students have been experimenting with seeds from the “Teach Peace” organization to see which ones were successful and might be useful in this area of the world.  They were donated by seed companies in the United States for distribution world wide.  We wanted to see if they would germinate and produce a crop in a tropical climate.

Students have been collecting data since November and will now analyze their data by producing a spreadsheet.  We will then write a summary report and send it to the “Teach Peace” organization with our findings.

Here is an example of what the spreadsheet might look like:
