They helped me throughout my process of this project, and whenever I felt down or that I couldn’t finish this, they helped me through it. If I thought that all was hopeless and I would get a bad grade, they would encourage me by saying very positive things like, “You can do this!’ or “We’ll always support you no matter what!’ This really helped me through the project a lot suprising, they taught me to always push my limits and always be outgoing, make a goal for yourself and try to over achieve that goal. I would also like to thank Gabby, this is because she provided me with the things I needed the most, and I really don’t think I could finish this without her.Purpose and Hypothesis The purpose of this experiment was to see if it was possible to grow a healthy bean but, not how you usually grow a bean. When you grow a bean, you are supposed to first, fill some water in a jar and make sure that it touches ALL edges and pour it out. With a small napkin, you place it in the jar and rest your bean on the tissue and place it by a windowsill, or someplace that gives the plant lots of sunlight, and soon you should be able to see your bean sprout. What I did was, I put the bean in the soil, and after that water the soil regularaly. This was to find out if the bean could grow as a healthy bean, but a different method of growing it, it was also a way to check if this method was better or, if the original method is better. My hypothesis was that the original method would work better mainly because the soil method I haven’t heard of, and the napkin method was widely known as the “correct” way.Review of Literature I did an experiment on beans and how they grow. I planted a bean the regular way, and then I put a bean in soil and watered it regulary. I wanted to find out if you can grow a bean in a different environent while still being healthy. I hypothesized that the regular bean would grow before the planted bean. The regular bean did grow before Bean B, but bean b died. I believe this is because the amount of Soil Ph in the soil that I used for my Bean B. The soil Ph level for a healthy bean, is 6 to 6.8. I might have put too little or too much. If the Ph range is out of control it can kill a plant or disease it. The first thing that I researched was that if a bean actually can grow in soil.  It can, except for the fact that it has a certain amount of Ph levels. If it is in the correct level, then the bean will be a healthy plant, but if you don’t have the correct ph levels, it can poison your plant. I then researched what soil pH level was, Soil pH is a measure of the acidity and alkalinity in soils. pH levels range from 0 to 14, with 7 being neutral, below 7 acidic and above 7 alkaline. Most plants use pH levels of 5 to 7. But the pH levels really depend on the amount of acidity that the plant can take. If it can take more, it will be a higher level than plants that cannot take as much poison. However there are many plants that have taken control of their pH range and now can go over o r under their range, while still being healthy. The second thing that I researched was HOW to grow a bean correctly. When I started this project, I actually didn’t really know how to grow a bean. When I researched I then realized that growing a bean is a totally different than growing a flower. Growing a bean in soil was not the best way to  grow a bean. If you grow a bean in a jar, and then put it in the soil. It will be more healthy and grow faster. I then researched the different environment that a bean can grow in, and in many of the articles it says that a bean can grow in many ways, but the best environment was a place with warmth and sunlight. I researched this because I felt that the different environment that we have in Chiccago can damage a bean. This is because, since we have colder temperature we have longer nights and less days, which mean less sunlight. This was one of the many things that could have gone better for the project. MaterialsMaterialUseNapkinThe napkin is used to provide water to the growing bean. JarThe jar is used to put the napkin and the bean inside. This helps the bean sprout.1 plant potThe plant pot is used for the soil, which is the “shelter” for your bean.Some soilThe soil is the home for the bean.1 NotebookYou use the notebook to record data.1 pencilYou use the pencil to write the data in the notebook.2 beans The beans are the center of this project, it is the heart. You are supposed to grow this.1 watering canThe watering can holds the water.WaterThe water grows the bean to it’s healthy stage.ProcedureI would get the beans and the soilFind out a source of where I am going to plant beans Research my topic Start my experimentBean A (Original Method)1 Get a jar2 Fill up the jar with water, and swirl it in the jar3 Pour out the water, but keep it WET, it helps the bean grow4 Put your napkin or kitchen roll and press it up against the glass5 Slip the bean into the jar in BETWEEN the paper and the glass6 Put the jar by a windowsill or anyplace that gets water7 Sprinkle some water on the plant everyday 8 After a few days, you wil see that the bean will start to germinate or sprout!Bean B (Soil Method)1 Get a pot2 Put some soil in the pot3 Place your bean under the soil, but not too far4 Water your bean weekly (if you water your bean daily, it will become flooded and gross I tried doing that…)5 See if the bean grows….Results This graph shows the results of my project. Bean A which was the original method sprouted after 8 days. 8 days! Sadly for bean B, it did not sprout at all, and was officially declared as dead. I believe this was because soil is a tiny bit poison for a bean so that could be the cause of the death. ConclusionAfter concluding this experiment I think it’s safe to say that a bean does NOT grow in soil. My experiment was about if a bean can grow in soil, or if the only way to grow a bean was to do the traditional way. I hypothesized that the bean with the traditional method would grow first and the one in soil would grow a little later. How I did my experiment was I put 2 beans in very different places. One I put in ta jar with a wet napkin, and the other one I put in a cup full of soil, watering it weekly. My hypthesis was proven correct and incorrect. My bean with the traditional way grew, but sadly the bean in the soil did not. I don’t know if it is dead or not, but I am pretty sure that it is dead. Something that I learned throughout this project was that, really the only way to grow a bean is the original way. The bean will not grow other wise. Another thing that I learned was that soil/dirt might not always be the best thing for youre plant if you want it to grow healthy. I learned that soil Ph was basically poison for your’e bean aswell, i don’t know if it’s for other beans, but a lima bean, it’s poison.Application I believe that this project was fair, but one thing that I would change was my placement of the plants. All the plants had a placement but they were all very close, but the original bean got only a little light at some point so I wouldn’t call this accurate. I would change the type of plant because I used a lima bean and if I used a actual flower or something like that it would change the results of the experiment. I’m curious that maybe if I did this project again, it would change because of the temperature of the room, and the season itself.Bibliography(n.d.).
