The Effects of Acid Rain on the Environment

Middle schoolers work in groups to expose healthy plants to various environmental conditions. Each group is assigned a different amount of lemon juice to add to their water source, simulating acid rain. Some water is administered through the soil to the roots, and some is dropped onto a single leaf daily. Every other day over a two week period, they record their observations. An organized lesson plan is provided for the teacher and links to handouts are provided for investigators.
