Ways to "Boss" a Plant Around

Students identify and analyze through experimentation how different factors can effect the growth of plants such as popcorn. Students determine the effects of light on seedlings germinated in the dark versus the light. Students determine if brightness of light alters the growth rate of a plant, such as in a greenhouse. Students also determine the effects of growing plants close together versus growing plants farther apart.
