Product Description
It is amazing how quickly a growing root can change directions in response to gravity! Directions are completely described to build a viewing chamber that allows the root to grow in any direction. The scientific explanation of how the root tip is able to change its direction of growth is described. Blank cup templates are provided for students to record the visual results of the experiment.

This teaching packet also contains several document camera-ready images to use when teaching about the functions of roots. There are also notes provided in a graphic format that can be projected.

A list of vocabulary words is provided which are integrated into a matching worksheet, which could be used as a homework assignment or as a formal assessment. There are also two versions of crossword puzzles included, with and without a word bank, which allows you to differentiate the assignment. Answer keys included.

A list of recommended instructional videos on plant roots is included and includes time lapse videos of roots growing after germination.

Finally, this packet provides two informational articles on plant roots. One article is at a lower level and the other is at a higher level of reading comprehension. Each article is accompanied by a question sheet that contains multiple choice questions as well as an open-ended question.
