This fun-filled lesson encourages students to explore the effects of plants on the weathering of rocks. Students will participate in a fun, hands-on science investigation that proves rocks can be eroded/weathered by plants. Your kiddos are sure to love this activity. In this lesson students will create their own model rock from Plaster of Paris and grow a seed inside. As the plant grows, students will track the effects of the plant on the rock.
