This unit overview accompanies the Tomatosphere program, which is free for teachers. Tomatosphere provides teachers with tomato seeds, some of which have been in space!! This is an awesome opportunity for kids of all ages to conduct a meaningful, out of this world experiment. The program lends itself to so many cross curricular connections.
The overall unit driving questions are:
- How does a drastic environment change affect the growth of tomato plants?
- How can we create conditions that promote the growth of food and other plants?
