Dear Mr./Mrs. Last Name:


The question (objective) I have chosen to answer for my project is the following:

Does the amount of sunlight a flower gets affect its growth?

I think the results of my experiment (hypothesis) will show that plants grown without sunlight will not be as tall as plants grown with sunlight.


The experiment that I intend to conduct (procedure) will be accomplished as follows: I will obtain seven flowers that are the same height. I will put three flowers in the dark in a cupboard. I will put three more flowers on the shelf where they can obtain sunlight. I will leave one flower on another part of the shelf as a control. I will water the flowers equally and make sure that the temperature inside the cupboard is the same as outside the cupboard. I will record temperature, height of plants and general health of plants daily for one month.


Yours truly,
