Corn Eats Lunch!

This lesson is one of a series by the National Corn Growers Association. Pupils read a story "Ann Learns to Plow." They explore "nutrient exchange" by comparing root hairs with money to buy nutrients from the soil. They role play the process. Students demonstrate the ability of plants to absorb nutrients by using celery and colored water. They complete a worksheet about the parts of a corn root.
