    Experiment
    The goal of this basic lab is break the misconception that photosynthesis is how plants grow. Students should also learn that plants grow by cell division.

    Experiment
    Students will practice designing their own experiment. Students will experience pluripotent stem cells by watching a stem grow roots. Students should also recognize that plants grow by cell division.

    The Effects of Light and Temperature on the Growth and Development of Plants
    Lesson Plan
     
    Evaluate
    Experiment
    Students learn how visible light constitutes only a small part of the spectrum of radiant energy. Light can be separated into a variety of colors if passed through a prism. Certain colors correspond to different wavelengths of the light present. Certain wavelengths are reflected by plant pigments and others are absorbed. When plants are grown in different wavelengths and temperature variations, the size, color and the length of their growth processes are affected.
