Children will construct a plankton net to collect pond samples, and they'll grow microorganisms in a Winogradsky Column. They'll discover what mystery plants sprout from collected soil samples and build a rolypoly habitat. When children experiment with phototropism and geotropism, they'll discover the ways plants move.
