Energy for Tree Growth

Students investigate a tree's need for water and sunlight to survive by conducting two experiments in small groups. They isolate the end of a leaf bearing twig in a sealed jar to discover the process of transpiration then look at growth differences in seedlings kept in the dark versus in the sunlight.

I taught in the public schools for many years. When I moved to Japan and began teaching a large ESOL population, I found that I needed more resources and there just aren't "teacher stores" around. Lesson Planet has been a big help with supplemental material.
