Brooklyn School 5th Grade Science Students Construct Terrariums During Engaging Lab Activity

Grass seed growing in student made terrarium

Fifth grade students at Brooklyn School had the opportunity to conduct research, develop a hypothesis, test it with experimentation and share results as part of an interactive lab activity in science class. Under the guidance of 5th grade Science teacher Mrs. Ann Marie Yarman, students constructed actual terrariums in which grass seed would be planted and observed over a period of time. The project called for students to use gravel, charcoal, landscaping fabric, soil seeds and water to sow grass seeds.  Along the way, they made predictions about when the seeds would sprout and how long will it take for them to grow to certain heights.  Students analyzed the important processes of condensation formation, which is part of photosynthesis.   Once grass reached a height of 5 cm, each group changed a variable of growth, such as amount of light, the amount of water, soil conditions and heat levels.   After collecting data, students will be required to do a presentation. This science experience allowed students to walk through steps of the scientific method, enhanced their grasp of photosynthesis and deploy creativity.  Way to go 5th grade science students!
