STEP ONE: 1. Prepare your container.
Ask an adult to drill holes in the base of an old suitcase. Place a trash bag inside and punch holes in it. Add a layer of grit and then fill the case with potting soil mixed with some grit.
STEP TWO: 2. Have fun with geography.
Imagine the surface of your suitcase is a world map. Arrange the herb plants you have bought according to the position of the country where they originated.
STEP THREE: 3. Create space for herb plants.
For each plant, make a deep hole in the soil that is large enough to fit the root ball. Water the plant, then gently squeeze it out of its pot and place the plant into the hole. Hold the plant by the root ball as you gently remove it from its pot.
STEP FOUR:4. Fill in the soil around the plant.
The base of the stem should be level with the soil surface. Once you've planted all your herbs, water them around their roots.
STEP FIVE:5. Decorate your garden.
Do a little research and make flags to show where the herbs originated.
IDENTIFY THINGS I COULD MEASURE OR OBSERVE CHANGING
How much water/dye we put in
How tall will it grow
Will it change colour
I will measure/observe BECAUSE…(dependent)
We don't want to overwater it
If it will grow
If it works
WHAT CONDITION WILL I keep these the same (controlled variables)
Where we put it.
How much Water we put in it.
How much dye we put with the water.
