 “Plants have to have soil !” says Riya

Is this true? Can a seed germinate without any soil?

We are learning about the germination process.
Hypothesis: (Students think) A seed will not grow if it has water and sunlight, but no soil.

We are doing an experiment to help us understand and observe the growth of a seed.

1.   First we wet a tissue then carefully placed 3 seeds in the tissue and folded it over.
2.   Next we put it in a sealable bag and placed it in the sun on our shelf.
3.   We will add a teaspoon of water when the tissue dries out.
4.   Each day we will make observational notes and diagrams of the germinating seeds.

This is my  handwriting goal
