8 x seed trays all ready. But before we could put them on the windowsill, we had to randomise their order. 1 label from
each tray was taken and placed in a bag. Labels were then pulled out from the bag and the order used to place the trays
on the windowsill in our classroom.
All done! Our seeds are now watered daily and the trays turned every two days so they grow straight. We have specific days
to note results on our results chart which is then entered on the national database once the experiment has finished. Only then
do we get to find out which colour packet has been in space... Which colour do you predict?
