Hydroponics: Can Plants Grow without Soil?
In this hands-on investigation, students will utilize the hydroponic method to grow a bean plant from a bean seed. Over the course of a 2 week time period, students will make detailed observations and sketches of the actual bean growth and make predictions about growth patterns over the weekend time periods. Students will create a cartoon to defend the position that plants obtain materials needed for growth primarily from air and water. This lesson results from a collaboration between the Alabama State Department of Education and ASTA.
What Does Life Require?
By growing organisms in a variety of environments, students will explore different materials that living things need to survive. This lesson was created as part of the 2016 NASA STEM Standards of Practice Project, a collaboration between the Alabama State Department of Education and NASA Marshall Space Flight Center.
