Designed for older elementary students to help them examine and understand the needs of plants for growth and survival. For the sake of time, the class can be split in thirds, with some students conducting a light/dark experiment, some studying plant nutritional needs, and some studying effects of acid rain. Results will be shared at the end. This kit contains materials for 15 groups of two.
