In Search of a Better Bean: A Simple Activity to Introduce Plant Biology
Spaccarotella, Kim; James, Roxie
American Biology Teacher, v76 n5 p352-353 May 2014
Measuring plant stem growth over time is a simple activity commonly used to introduce concepts in growth and development in plant biology (Reid & Pu, 2007). This Quick Fix updates the activity and incorporates a real-world application: students consider possible effects of soil substrate and sunlight conditions on plant growth without needing access to costly supplies. Although written for undergraduates, the activity could be adapted for secondary students.
