Step 1. Gather your materials.
Step 2. Make observations.
Step 3. Fill each cup with 1/4 cups of soil.
Step 4. Make a hole with your finger.
Step 5. Put one bean in each hole in the cup. Cover your bean with soil.
Step 6.Put 10ml of water in one of the cups.
Step 7. In the other cup put 10mL of lemon juice.
Step 8.Write lemon juice on one popsicle stick and water on another.
Step 9. Gently stick the lemon juice popsicle stick in the lemon cup and the water stick in the water cup.
Step 10. Stick both where sunlight is available.
Step 11. Repeat watering the bean plants 10mL every other day. 10mL of lemon juice to the lemon juice cup and 10mL of water to the water cup for 3 weeks
Step 12. Use the ruler to see which plant is taller.
Step 13. Record data.

Revised Experiment Steps
Step 1. Go get your lab coat and goggles.
Step 2. Put your lab coat and goggles on.
Step 3. Get 2 beans and 2 cups.
Step 4. Put your name on both cups.
Step 5.Take your 2 beans and go weigh them.
Step 6. Then take your your 2 cups and put equally amounts of soil in them.
Step 7. Make a hole half way through the soil in both cups.(bout the width of your pinkie)
Step 8. Then, drop 1 bean in each hole, gently cover the bean with soil.
Step 9. Then, go get 10mL of water in a graduated cylinder.
Step 10. Pour the 10mL of water in one of the cups.
Step 11. Then, go get 10mL of lemon juice in a graduated cylinder.
Step 12. Pour the lemon juice in the other cup that has no water in it.
Step 13. Rinse the cylinders you used out and lay them out to dry.
Step 14. Write on the cups which one has the lemon juice and which one has the water in it.
Step 15. Lay your cups on the table Mr. Mayher has set up.

I had to write a revised copy because I left out many important steps in my experiment, like to stick the bean in the soil and other things like that. So it's good to always look over your work and correct it all the time because you might miss some important things.
