Question advice for how water affects plant growth

I am a 4th grader doing a science fair project on what type of water affects plant growth. I am using carbonated water, distilled water, tap water and run-off water from a local creek. My hypotheses is that run-off water will make my bean seeds grow faster because it seems to have more "stuff" like micro-organisms and nutrients but I need help for a better wording and if I am thinking right. Any ideas you can send my way will help. Am I missing anything?

Your main idea is pretty good, and I see what you mean, but your hypothesis need work. Try this...(Make sure to eleborate on your hypothesis)

"What water will help bean seeds grow the most?"
I believe that run-off water will make the bean seeds grow the most because of the many minerals that are found in it, not to mention the many nutrients.

Your project's great, except for one thing, like Sat said, you can't jsut say there is alot of stuff in it, say that i think run-off water is the most preferable for plant growth because run-off water is recyled throught he Earth's atmosphere in the hygrologic cycle and obtained many minerals and micro-organisms that will help plants grow. Run-off water had been helping plants on Earth grow for millions of years while the other waters only existed after human came along, so why doubt the benefits of run-off water that is in its natural habitat instead of being renovated by human activities.

(Yes you can copy, exactly what i just wrote for the hypothesis)
