Are There Weeds Here?

Students gather soil, and observe whether or not weeds sprout and they record results. They discover how abundant weed seeds are in the soil bank, and how easily they sprout under the right conditions. Students record germination and plant growth. They calculate possible seed growth in an area near their school.

Lesson Planet has been awesome to me. As a 1st year teacher I often spend so much time planning and researching materials that could help my students/classes learn. Lesson Planet has given me great access to emergency lesson plans and activities, video clips, and many more unit ideas to succeed.
