The experiment at hand is why do plants tend to grow towards the light. In order find out why the plants do this then we must follow the scientific method. We must first observe and question to know why we should try to prove the question. Next we must create a hypothesis. Then we can then do the testing. After, the testing we must analyze the results and determine if the result proves our hypothesis. If it does not prove the hypothesis, then we must start over with a new question. Should have in text citation here to identify source of this info. Good intro, provides background info for the reader. Good conclusion, you touched on some of the key points of the paper

The hypothesis that I have chosen to do is, what is the reason that plants grow towards windows is because they respond to light which they need to make their food. I will start with my web experiment and how the scientific method applies to it. I first used the observation and questioning and asked why plants grow towards windows. Next, I chose a hypothesis If light was placed on the other side would the plant grow that direction? The testing for the web experiment was to grow three plants with light on the left side and three plants with light on the right side. The results stated that the leaves and the top of the plant started growing towards the light no matter what side the light is on. I accept the hypothesis because the results support the statement. Explanation- The explanation to the web experiment is that plants and leaves of
