Product Description
A nice short-term plant experiment that uses germinating radish seeds to view the emerging tap root and developing filamentous roots of the young seedling. A perfect activity for those that have stereomicroscopes or magnifying lens in their classroom. The procedure to set up the germination chamber is completely described (the activity requires the availability of plastic petri dishes). Graphic notes are included on roots and the root tip, which is an area of active growth where new cells are being made by mitosis.

Blank observation templates are provided for students to draw their observations and the materials and procedure are provided which can be incorporated into student’s lab notebooks.
