Students will investigate phototropism through student-led experimental inquiry,
Students will make observations about the directional growth of plants toward the light (phototropism). They will conduct background research, about phototropism, to test their questions, analyze their results, and draw conclusions based on results and additional research. Students will direct the experience from start to finish using the templates included in this resource.
The guiding materials included in this resource are geared toward high school students. Having some experience with inquiry-based learning and experimental design is helpful but not mandatory.
Prep includes gathering and setting up lab materials and printing and distributing copies of templates included in this resource. Lab materials are pretty basic. The activity can be completed without any fancy gardening or science equipment. Mandatory materials include a light source (sun), and fast-growing plants (I use pinto beans).
This resource includes a printable and Google Slides digital version. The resource is not editable at this time.
