Have students explore the importance of plants' basic needs by experimenting on real plants! Have student grow the plants for this experiment, and then test the importance of three basic needs: air, water and sunlight by taking each one of these needs away from one plant.
Use this resource to help students keep track of their observations and data throughout the experiment.
Students begin by forming a hypothesis, building on prior knowledge and using critical thinking skills. Then, students practice making and recording observations into organized tables using drawing, writing, and measurement. Students are able to have fun and explore the living environment while also practicing important skills.
Perfect for a unit covering: plants, life cycles, basic needs, living things, living vs non-living, the scientific method, seeds, roots, leaves, photosynthesis and more!
