In this plant science activity, learners role play as vegetables and weeds competing for nutrients. The object of the game is for the weeds and vegetables to gather as many colored squares as they can. Each paper square represents a different type of nutrient (i.e. green squares represent nitrogen). If a vegetable or a weed does not have at least two of each color square, they ‰ŰĎdie‰Ű from not getting enough nutrients and must step out of the garden. Use this activity to simulate survival and competition in nature and plant-life. (less)

In this lesson, students will learn that minerals are a necessary part of our diet. They will learn that different minerals have different functions in the body. More specifically, they will discover that iron is necessary to carry oxygen around the body. In the associated activity, students will design a process that removes the most iron from the cereal.

In this kinesthetic activity, learners move pom-pom "ions" across a membrane to simulate how an action potential is propagated along an axon. Conducted as a group activity, this color-coded simulation helps learners visualize how an action potential travels down a neuron. Learners also get to eat candy during this simulation! (less)

The purpose of this resource is to measure the amounts of nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium in each horizon in a soil profile. Using a NPK test kit, students mix a dry, sieved soil sample into a solution and chemically extract the N, P, and K as nitrate, phosphate, and potassium. The N, P, and K amounts in the sample are determined by comparing the solution to a color chart. Students describe the N, P, K amounts as high, medium, low, or none. These measurements are conducted three times for each horizon. (less)
