Chemicals in the Soil

High schoolers measure the effects of soil chemistry on the growth of plants. They simulate the chemical composition of soil near a copper mine and then attempt to grow plants in a variety of soils. Students relate the plant's growth to the soil composition in which it was grown.

Being a first year foreign language teacher came with many trials. However, having Lesson Planet has made my job so much easier :). I can always find a few lessons on any given concept I am introducing to my students. The neatest thing is the agility of use the site provides and the search for lessons by grade. I love that! (Especially since I teach 4th - 8th graders.) I need a variety of lessons that meets my students' needs at their level.
