In this activity, learners create a garden in a disposable glove. They learn about the conditions necessary to make the seeds sprout and actively participate in caring for their plants.
Bean BugsAdd to list Details
In this outdoor biology and math activity, learners estimate the size of a population of organisms too numerous to count.
Animal DiversityAdd to list Details
In this outdoor activity, learners find, count and compare as many different kinds of animals as they can find in two different areas: a managed lawn and a weedy area.
Leaves: Extracting Pigments
In this fun, hands-on autumn activity, learners experiment to discover whether the colored substances in leaves can be separated from the leaves.
Plant Parts and Their DiseasesAdd to list Details
This exercise is designed to teach young learners the different parts of a plant (root, stems, leaves, flowers, fruit, and seeds), the basic functions of each part, and to show that tiny microscopic o
Plant Tissue Culture: Classroom Activities in Plant BiotechnologyAdd to list Details
In this activity related to plant biotechnology, learners use the tissue culture process to rapidly produce clones (genetic copies) of a particular plant (cauliflower, rose cuttings, African violet le
In this activity, learners will make seed orbs to grow new trees and plants. Learners will explore ecology and life cycles as well as stewardship through this activity.
Healthy Habitats Have Native Plants
In this activity, learners help identify native and non-native plant species, learn about invasive species, and determine how native plants provide a healthier habitat.
Flower PowderAdd to list Details
In this outdoor activity, learners use artificial bees and paper models of flowers to find out how bees transfer pollen from one flower to another.
EnvirolopesAdd to list Details
In this outdoor activity and observation game, learners hunt for a variety of textures, colors, odors and evidence of organisms in the activity site.
How does a green roof, or roof covered by plants, affect the temperature of the inside and outside of a building? Learners design and build houses to find out the answer.
The Water (Hydrologic) Cycle: Transpiration
In this lab, learners grow broad bean (also called fava bean) plants in three EarthBoxes for a few weeks before exposing one to wind (using a fan), another to heat (using a lamp), and the third to not
Lighting Up Celery Stalks
In this activity, learners conduct a series of hands-on experiments that demonstrate how the working of plants' veins, known as capillary action, enables water to travel throughout the length of a pla
Do Plants Need Light?
In this food science activity, learners conduct an experiment that demonstrates the importance of light to plants.
In this activity, learners will examine a variety of seeds, describe them, and determine how they are dispersed.
This activity (located on page 3 of the PDF under GPS: Temperate Rain Forest Activity) is a full inquiry investigation into biodiversity of a given habitat.
The Carbon Cycle and its Role in Climate Change: Activity 2
In this activity (on page 7), learners explore the meaning of a "carbon sink." Using simple props, learners and/or an educator demonstrate how plants act as carbon sinks and how greenhouse gases cause
Water "Digs" It!
In this activity, learners investigate soil erosion. Learners set up a simulation to observe how water can change the land and move nutrients from one place to another.
Build a Coral PolypAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners build one or more edible coral polyps and place them together to form a colony.
Sensational SeaweedAdd to list Details
In this culinary activity, learners use multiple senses (sight, smell, touch, and taste!) to explore real seaweed samples.
