Plant Growth And Change

Our final unit in Science, Plant Growth and Change will examine vegetation in the world around us.  We'll even learn of the connection to Light and Shadow and to Waste in Our World.


What does it take for a plant to go from seed to a full grown plant?  Follow along.

Plants don't move... do they?

Can a plant survive without sunlight?  What if it doesn't have any oxygen?  Work with this interactive site and find out the answers to these and other questions.

What path does energy follow, and how is it transferred from one type of organism to another?  Learn how 400 pounds of corn can't be converted into a 400 pound cow.
After you complete the activity, please complete the Plant Growth: Energy Flow Quiz.

Try this experiment to see how seed germinate.

Trivia about the process of photosynthesis.  (It's a hard one.  Don't be surprised that Mr. G. only got to the third question.)


Normally, it would be boring to watch.  But this video has time-lapse photography AND catchy music.   (Seriously, I can't get this tune out of my head.  Watch at your own risk!)

Two friends who live in different environments compare plants, animals, water, and sunlight.

Adaptations of plants and animals to survive in one of the most extreme environments in the world.

Watch the Video and then complete the Plant Growth: Photosynthesis Quiz

What do plant's eat at a BBQ?  If you're not careful, it might be you!
