The past few weeks in Science, we have been working on the Scientific Method. We were given an assignment to conduct experiments relating to botany. We identified the independent and dependent variables as well as formulated the steps of the Scientific Method. The six steps of the Scientific Method are: making an observation, formulating a question, creating a hypothesis, conducting an experiment, analyzing your data, and finally, coming to a conclusion. The majority of us are doing experiments related to planting and growing seeds. One student is growing white carnations in food colored water. She put two or three flowers in four different containers of water, each a different color. The colors she chose were red, blue, yellow, and green. Her experiment is to see if the xylem, a part of the stem, carries the water up to the flower petals and changes their color.
