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.
Saldo Island: An Unfair Game
In this environmental science activity about biodiversity, learners play a game to discover the effects of non-native species on an ecosystem.
Plant Parts and Their Diseases
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
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.
Planting with Precision
In this activity, learners explore how engineers work to solve the challenges of a society, such as efficient planting and harvesting.
Grass Seed Hair Cups
In this activity learners will plant grass seed and track the growth of the grass over time.
Life in a NutshellAdd to list Details
In this multi-faceted game (on pages 25-35), learners recreate what happens to creatures in the Brazilian rain forest as they grow from egg to adult—especially those that use fallen, empty Brazil nut
Easy PEAsy Seed Germination
In this activity, learners determine the necessary conditions for pea seed germination.
Water Quality and pH Levels in Aquatic Ecosystems
In this fun and in depth hands-on experiment, learners test various liquid samples (distilled water, lemon juice, vinegar, and baking soda mixed with water) to determine their pH levels and identify e
CD GreenhouseAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners plant seeds and watch them sprout and grow inside a CD case.
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.
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 investigate different types of bird beaks using household items which mimic different beak examples.
In this activity, learners will examine a variety of seeds, describe them, and determine how they are dispersed.
Discovery Time: Trees
In this activity, young learners (2 years and up) explore tree structure and biology. Tree products are explored by painitng with fruit.
Make a Friend from Soil and Seeds
Learners assemble a figure from a nylon stocking or sock stuffed with soil and seeds. The ends of the nylons inside the jar absorb water, which feeds the grass seeds.
Many Seeds: Estimating Hidden Seeds
In this activity, learners will estimate how many seeds are in a fruit or vegetable, then count to find out. The result: mix estimation with healthy eating.
Seedy TravelersAdd to list Details
In this activity (on pages 18-28), learners explore how the shape of seeds affects how they are dispersed by wind, birds, ocean currents and other means.
In this activity, learners build a bird feeder or feeders to attract birds for observation.
The Self-Watering TerrariumAdd to list Details
In this biology/ecology activity, learners construct a terrarium out of a tennis ball container. This terrarium is unique because it never has to be watered.
