Arizona State University: Radish Germination and Inquiry

Introduce students to germination, plant needs and how to set up a scientific experiment. Radish seed germination will be the focus as students choose a problem to investigate, design and conduct an experiment, then make observations and a conclusion.

Note: Students are required to calculate the percentage of germination. Calculating percentage is introduced in Grade 6. However, students can calculate the percentage on calculators, if instructed or with teacher assistance.
