With some chatting/discussing what our plant investigations should look like, there was lots of "figuring out" about what a fair test would look like with plants and where they get their matter from.

Even with the differences, each class has figured out a way to see which of the factors we think will give plants the matter they need to grow! Since we aren't together physically, we agreed to try and set up our own investigations at home. Mrs. Brinza set up these:
In the meantime, we're lucky that the scientific community is and has tried something similar to what we've been doing! So there's this gentleman running a similar experimental setup to ours in his home, too! We'll check back over time to see how it goes!
