How Plants Grow
In this biology activity (page 3 of the PDF), learners will explore how plants turn sunlight into food through a process called photosynthesis.
What's Hiding in the Air?: Acid Rain Activity
As a model of acid rain, learners water plants with three different solutions: water only, vinegar only, vinegar-water mixture.
Film Canister FarmingAdd to list Details
In this hands-on botany activity, learners sprout vegetables in film canisters.
Growing Plants: Track Their Growth
In this activity, learners will be working with predictions with a time frame of one week, or longer. Start by planting seedlings.
In this creativity-based activity, learners imagine what the Earth will look like in the near and distant future, then design their own future habitat and creatures that may live there.
Leaf Me Alone
In this activity, learners explore the structure of plant leaves. Learners find out what happens when they coat either the top or bottom sides of leaves with petroleum jelly.
Extinct!: Are You Smarter than a Plant?
In this online activity, learners find out whether they are smart enough to survive as a plant.
Plant HuntAdd to list Details
In this outdoor activity and game, learners collect and sort leaf samples to determine how many types of plants grow in the activity site.
Desert Water KeepersAdd to list Details
In this outdoor, sunny day activity, learners experiment with paper leaf models to discover how some desert plants conserve water.
Salt, Soil and Seeds
Discover how the salt in soil affects plant growth with a few seeds, some cotton, and salt. In this hands-on activity, you will plant seeds in 2 different kinds of soil, containing more or less salt.
Vegetable RevivalAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners use food scraps from the kitchen to grow new vegetables.
Find Out How Plants Use Water
In this activity, learners investigate how plants use water. By making the flowers change color, learners see how water moves up the stem to the leaves and the flowers.
In this activity, learners will dissect a pumpkin or winter squash to learn the parts of the plant. This activity gets your learner hands on with every part of the plant and will be messy.
Take a Plant to LunchAdd to list Details
Learners make a "menu" of any plants in their lunch for Monday through Friday and draw the plants from their lunch.
Composting: A Scientific Investigation
In this activity, learners conduct a scientific investigation involving decomposition and discover that the life cycle of trash is affected by its organic or inorganic nature.
Roots and ShootsAdd to list Details
In this outdoor activity, learners discover that plants aren't just shoots (stem, branches, leaves, and flowers) growing above ground, but contain plenty of roots growing underground—more than half th
Beach ZonationAdd to list Details
In this outdoor, ocean-side activity, learners investigate the distribution of organisms in the upper region of the intertidal zone.
Invent a PlantAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners construct models of plants that are adapted to living under specific environmental conditions.
Plant PatternsAdd to list Details
In this outdoor mapping activity, learners explore where plants grow and map plant-distribution patterns.
Cactus WheelAdd to list Details
In this outdoor activity/field trip, learners explore the concept of population density.
