My Bean Project

2.Background Knowledge

Will the bean grow better with salt water or regular water?

Background Knowledge
I known that water will give the plant more strength but the salt water wont give it as much strength as the water will.

I predict that the water will make the bean plant grow better.

  • Two pinto beans
  • 2 paper cups (2oz.)
  • Graduated cylinder (10ml)
  • Soil 
  • Ruler 
  • Paper towel
  • Paper
  • Pencil

  1. Gather materials
  2. Put jacket on
  3. Put safety goggles on
  4. Get two cups
  5. Label one cups 
  6. Put soil in both cups
  7. Weigh the cups (make sure they weigh the same)
  8. Get two beans
  9. Weigh the beans
  10. Record data
  11. Put  1 bean in a cup
  12. Weigh the cups again 
  13. Record your data once again
  14. Get two more cups
  15. Put water 1/2 way into both cups
  16. Add 5km of salt into 1 cup
  17. Weigh the cups
  18. Make the cups weigh the same
  19. Then record your data again
  20. Pour regular water into the the cup that is not labeled
  21. Pour salt water into cup labeled salt water
  22. Write your hypothesis

Collect Data
Turned it in.

The salt water plant died. They regular water plant sprouted a little bit.

Questions to Extend
What would have happened if i used sugared water instead of salt water?

What would have happened if i watered the plant less?
