• SpongeBob loves to garden and wants to grow lots
of pink flowers for his pal Sandy. He bought a
special Flower Power fertilizer to see if will help
plants produce more flowers. He plants two plants
of the same size in separate containers with the
same amount of potting soil. He places one plant
in a sunny window and waters it every day with
fertilized water. He places the other plant on a
shelf in a closet and waters it with plain water
every other day.
• What did SpongeBob do wrong in this experiment?
Explain.
• SpongeBob did not provide both plants with the
same amount of water and sunshine. In order to
test the fertilizer correctly, both plants should
have been placed in the sunny window and
watered every day with the same amount of
water. The only difference between the two plants
should have been the fertilizer - one plant would
be watered with the water with fertilizer and the
other would be watered with plain water.

• A student sets up an experiment to see which type of light
helps plants grow longer beans. He places two identical bean
plants seedlings in two different trays. He plants one seedling
in soil taken from his garden and one seedling in soil taken
from a field. He places them under two different lights, one
blue and one red. Which of these is a possible flaw that would
make it difficult to draw a clear conclusion from the
experiment?
