Very simple lab report worksheet that allows younger students to practice making predictions, observations and introduce them to the basics of controlled experiment. In this activity students are given 3 plant substrates- vermiculite, soil and water and will compare the results for each on a weekly basis. Practice making detailed observations and get students used to laboratory procedures.
Cups for soil and vermiculite growing. My local nursery had recyclable/compostable cups for $.29 each
10lbs of soil for every 25 students
Either hydropoinic aerogardens or simply plastic bags with minimal water in them
