# Construct A Lab Report - Seed Germination

```OBJ: How do we construct a college style lab
DN: Copy Lab Report notes.
ACT: Given notes SWBAT explain how to
construct a college style lab report with 70%
accuracy.
HW: Complete part of Seed Germination Lab
(State Problem, Hypothesis; due tomorrow).

Problem: Why was the lab done? State as a question.
Hypothesis: educated guess
Materials: equipment used
Procedure: Steps taken to solve problem.
Results/Conclusion: What did you learn/discover? See
data table, graph
• Abstract/Summary: Briefly explain . . .
– Why was lab done?
– Briefly state steps/experiments done.

table, graph; be specific).
SEED GERMINATION LAB
REPORT
Problem: How do seeds germinate
(grow) over time?
Hypothesis: As time goes by, the
plant’s height increases.
Materials: petri dish, paper towel,
scissors, soil, dixie cup, water.
PROCEDURE
Place seeds into soaked towel in petri tray.
Place tray on window sill; sunny location.
Each day water seeds, record observations and
measurements for 10 days.

Conclusion
According to my graph, as time
increases (day 1 → day 10 ), the plant’s
height got taller.
My graph shows a direct relationship.
