Key Stage Three: How Plants Guzzle *suitable for home teaching*
Two lessons from the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC)'s Seeing Science in which students look at how some plants absorb heavy metals. The lessons include an experiment to measure the amount of copper absorbed by lettuce and radish plants. In another activity, students use evidence cards and a map to solve a potential environmental problem. STFC is a part of the Research Councils UK (RCUK) partnership of research councils.
