The purpose for doing this Science Fair project is to figure out which soil will grass grow in the fastest, Potting soil, Organic soil, Garden soil, or Lawn soil.


The first step for this experiment is to gather all of your materials, which is the following, Four round stone plates, Four medium sized planting pots, Potting soil, Organic soil, Garden soil, Lawn soil, labels, sharpie marker (red), a plastic 7oz cup, Measuring cup, grass seed, and a data log book.
