    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.

    Evaluate
    Experiment
    Students learn about the structural components of seeds of higher plants and the functions of each of these components. Students also investigate how fertilizer affects the growth of plants, particularly of seedlings, and how this relates to seed structure.

    Lesson Plan
     
    Evaluate
    Experiment
    In the following exercises the structure of a seed (particularly the embryo) is observed and two experiments are performed to show the function of the cotyledons in providing nourishment to the plant during the early times after germination.
