The students: grew seeds until short shoots had grown used black plastic to cover parts of some of the shoots put the shoots in light coming from one direction put boxes over the shoots to keep out other light. The diagrams show how the investigation was set up. Two days later the students took off the black plastic covers and looked at the shoots. The diagrams show the results.
