Do Plants Need Light?
Turn your classroom into a greenhouse with a lesson on plant growth. First, investigate the different parts of seeds, identifying the seed coat, cotyledon, and embryo. Then plant the seeds and watch them grow! Measure the new plants every couple of days to document their growth, moving some into a dark corner of the room to demonstrate their dependence on light.

The Three Life-Giving Sisters: Plant Cultivation and Mohican Innovation
Children gain first-hand experience with Native American agriculture while investigating the life cycle of plants with this engaging experiment. Focusing on what the natives called the Three Sisters - corn, beans, and squash - young scientists germinate and grow seeds in order to learn about plant life and understand why the Mohicans chose to grow these plants alongside one another.

3-D Cell Model
Life science laureates choose a plant or animal cell to construct a model of as an at-home project. This handout provides guidelines, suggested materials, and a grading rubric for their reference. A full-page letter to parents is also part of this document, which can be used to emphasize the importance of the project.

Bee Pollen Popular
The world would be a much different place without the help of pollinators. Read about the important role bats, hummingbirds, and various insects play in plant reproduction, exploring the interdependence of living things in an ecosystem. Learn about the interesting social structure of beehives, each with a single queen, thousands of worker bees, and honeycombs full of babies.

New Review Edible Cell Model Project
Science has never tasted so sweet! Engage young scholars in exploring the anatomy of the cell with a fun life science project. Choosing to focus on either plants or animals, students create edible cell models with a key that identifies and explains the functions of organelles like the nucleus, mitochondria, cytoplasm, and cell membrane.

New Review Cell City Project - You are the Designer!
How can something as large as a city and as small as a cell have anything in common? That is exactly the question young scientists explore with this engaging life science project. Choosing to focus on a city, school, factory, or other large-scale structure, middle schoolers create posters describing analogies between each organelle in a plant cell and their urban equivalents.

Cell Construction Lab
An introduction and general requirements for creating a model of a plant or animal cell are provided for basic biology learners. It includes a list of which organelles must be crafted as well as a parent signature tear-off and an empty table for students to write down each organelle that they include, along with its function.

Cells: A First-Hand View
In the first of two activities, your charges prepare wet mount slides of cork and bean sprout cells in imitation of Robert Hooke's historical investigation. An excerpt from his notes is included. Then, investigators compare animal cells to plant cells under the microscope, noting the identifying structures.

The Effects of Photosynthesis on Plant Growth
Students are able to draw a diagram of the light reactions and briefly describe what is occurring throughout the process. They are able to explain where each reactant/product in the photosynthesis equation comes from/goes during the process and write down their observations about particular plants and discuss the implication some of these observations have on photosynthesis.

Osmosis and Plant Cells
Aside from obviously being a photocopy and a couple of minor formatting problems, this is a laudable lab activity for exploring osmosis. Biology groups cut potato chunks into equal volumes and record the mass of each. They place two chunks into each of three different concentrations of salt solution and later record the new masses.
