Astrofarmer - Learning about the conditions for plant growth
In this set of six activities, pupils will investigate which factors affect plant growth, and relate these factors to growing plants in space. They will learn that plants need air, light, water, nutrients and a stable temperature to grow. Children will also observe what happens to plants when they vary some of these factors. These 6 activities can be done individually or as a set.
