Students place their sealed bags in a sunny location (to simulate the out of doors.) Studemts observe chamges in the bags and record these by drawing in their water journals.

When plans are needed, and time is short, I begin here for help from my colleagues. The framework of lessons, excellent worksheets, and multimedia presentations has proved extremely helpful.
