Window to Nature: Root View Cup Activity

Our fabulous garden moms helped with a outdoor activity called Root View Cups. This activity is from Life Lab. We used snow pea seeds and they have been a huge success.

1-LS3-1. Make observations to construct an evidence-based account that young plants and animals are like, but not exactly like, their parents. [Clarification Statement: Examples of patterns could include features plants or animals share. Examples of observations could include leaves from the same kind of plant are the same shape but can differ in size; and, a particular breed of dog looks like its parents but is not exactly the same.] [Assessment Boundary: Assessment does not include inheritance or animals that undergo metamorphosis or hybrids.]

We had students use white crayons to write their names.

The paper cover slips off so the roots can be viewed.
