Do light and dark change how a plant grows?

Lesson: Science

Class: Year 1 Year: 2018 - 2019

We planted cress seeds in 5 containers.  We put 3 containers in the cupboard and 2 in the light.  We watered them daily using pipettes and observed them growing using magnifying glasses.  The cress in the light grew tall and green and looked good to eat.  The cress in the dark grew very tall indeed.  It had yellow leaves and looked unhealthy.
