Class 2 at Wood Street Primary are investigating how plants develop from seeds.

They sprinkle cress seeds over plastic cups filled with compost, then they water the seeds. Bill and Martha are members of class 2. They measure the length of their cress plants every Monday, Wednesday and Friday for four school weeks. They also write down any important observations.

Bill and Martha record their results in a table. They started their investigation on Monday of Week 1.
