Astro Crops - Growing plants for future space missions
In this Space mission themed activity, pupils will observe how seeds grow into mature plants by tracking the development of three unknown seeds. Pupils will also learn to make scientific observations and record data to track the growth of these plants over time before being given the opportunity to interpret and present their results, drawing important conclusions. This activities requires pupils to follow the development of plants for 12 weeks, so a long period of time will need to be allocated.
