Part 3: Data collection

  1. After planting, check on your plants daily and record the date of germination. For the first week after the plants emerge, try to observe them daily. After that, observe your plants weekly. Refer to your student worksheet for what observations to make and what data to collect.
  2. Share your observations and recorded data with your classmates to get a better picture of the characteristics of a Setaria population of plants versus your plants. Are there any differences?
