Fair test: growing peas

Learning Material  |  Interactive Lesson  |  RAR

Run experiments in a plant research laboratory. Investigate the effects of different variables on the growth of peas. Research the answers to questions about how to achieve optimum hydroponic growth conditions. Examine the effect of key variables on growth: nitrogen, temperature, light intensity and light duration. This learning object is one in a series of three objects.

Students set up controlled laboratory experiments to investigate variables affecting plant growth and analyse the resulting data.
Students understand the role of controlled experiments and repeated trials in scientific investigation.
