Soil pH Effect on Germination of Specific Weeds

Students collect weed seeds from three varieties of weeds (knapweed, thistle, or toadflax, for example they may choose others in addition to the spotted knapweed.) They sterilize soil for thirty containers, plant seeds in sterile soil, and mix vinegar with distilled water and label the container (25 mL vinegar and add distilled water to the 1,000 mL mark so the total volume equals 1,000 mL or 1 L).

Lesson Planet has been awesome to me. As a 1st year teacher I often spend so much time planning and researching materials that could help my students/classes learn. Lesson Planet has given me great access to emergency lesson plans and activities, video clips, and many more unit ideas to succeed.
