Peat Pots

Students place a peat pot in water to observe and calculate the rate of capillarity in a model of a soil. This task assesses students' abilities to make simple observations, collect, record, and represent data, use a data table to represent data, apply mathematics to solve for an unknown, use a graph to represent data, and draw conclusions from experiments.

I'm a science teacher assigned to teach an extra class in MATH. It's been great to get worksheets and ideas from other teachers who actually work in the field.
