Experiment Procedure

   Procedure (Unrevised)

Step 1: Gather materials.
Step 2: Measure the beans by scale and texture.
Step 3: Get two cups, fill both of them with water to about 3 in high.
Step 4: Put 1 teaspoon of salt in one of the cups.
Step 5: Mix the salt in with the water.
Step 6: Stick beans in dirt.
Step 7: Pour the unsalted water in one cup of the soil and
the salted one in the other.
   Procedure (Revised)

Step 1: Gather materials
Step 2: Put jacket on
Step 4: Get two cups
Step 5: Label both cups
Step 6: Put soil in both cups
Step 7: Weigh the cups (make sure they way the same)
Step 8: Get two beans
Step 9: Weigh the bean
Step 10: Record data:
Step 11: Put 1 bean in the cup
Step 12: Weigh the cups again
Step 13: Record data
Step 14: Get two more cups
Step 15: Put water 1/2 way in both cups
Step 16: add 5km of salt to 1 cup
Step 17: Weigh the cups
Step 18: Make the cups weigh the same
Step 19: Record data
Step 20: Pour regular water into the cup that is not labeled
Step 21: Pour salt water into the cup labeled salt water
Step 22: Write down a hypothesis


  1. Hey Marissa, my name is Faun, and I am in EDM310 at the University of South Alabama. I was reading about your experiment. It looks like a lot of work. What are you trying to achieve with this experiment? Is it for a science class?

  2. In this experiment we were trying to find out whether a bean grows better in water or salt water (whichever variable you chose to use besides water). Also yes, this experiment was for science.
