Unit 6.5: "Keeping it Fresh" Plant Growth

Students examine how environmental conditions, resource availability, competition, and genetics affect organism growth and reproduction. Students design an experiment to understand the impacts of these factors on plants grown in the classroom. They make a recommendation for how to maximize plant growth and reproduction, as well as practice developing predictions and making claims supported by evidence and reasoning.

Unit Challenge Question: How can we maintain the biggest supply of fresh food in places where plants do not naturally grow?
