Balloon Plants

Young scholars work in teams to explore what plants need to grow. They fill balloons with potting soil and drop radish seeds into the balloons, then add water and carbon dioxide and hand their balloons in the sun. Finally, students observe their balloons as the seeds sprout and chart their progress of their seeds.

When I am trying to find an alternative lesson from my norm, I try Lesson Planet, and always find a lesson that I can use. Sometimes a different perspective from a colleague can be that "point" that will work for that concept. I really feel that Lesson Planet is very well organized and easy to use. Thank you so much Lesson Planet for your help in my classroom.
