 We had to set up 8 seed trays.                 Each seed needed a label which we         Each seed label had to have a code.

We received 2 pack of seeds: a blue
pack and a red pack, each containing 100 seeds.  Each seed had to be given a code: R1 - R100 and B1 - B100

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?
