Investigation about acorns – 6th R.M. Aller




  • Investigation about acorns  (Sofía, Paula, Juan, Mario)

In Science class we investigated about acorns and found out that you need to select the best acorns putting them in a glass of water, the ones that float are OK and the ones that sink are not good enough. In our case, all the acorns are excellent and have already been selected.

We have two different types of acorns, the ones that have already germinated inside a box (due to humidity) and the ones that are still seeds.

  • Conditions to plant an oak (Lucía, Ana, Cristina and Míriam)

  2. Fill in the gardening pots with a bit of soil.
  3. Place the acorns horizontally.
