Students explore Earth science by participating in a measurement activity. In this botany lesson, students identify the germination process and plant their own seeds in class. Students record the amount of seeds that germinate properly and how long they take. They then create a graph using a spreadsheet program.
Students will conduct an experiment to determine the percentage of seed that will germinate in a given time frame. In this algebra/horticulture lesson, students will produce charts and graphs to represent the results of the experiment. This is an excellent example of a cross curriculum lesson that requires collaboration between a math and an agriculture teacher.
Students use the various steps of the scientific method to construct and carry out a detailed laboratory investigation (including a control). They demonstrate how various environmental factors may affect the process of seed germination in a variety of plant species. Students organize and present their findings to the class.
