Activity Description of "Determining transpiration from a schoolyard tree"

Title Determining transpiration from a schoolyard tree
Audience Grades 7-11. Biology, Integrated Science, Life Science
Abstract This is a great exploration for middle to highschool learners. It affords the opportunity for them to see that trees are veritable climatic engines. Furthermore, this inquiry can be extended to estimating the amount of water transpired in a tropical region of our planet. The key to this investigation and others of its kind is to turn our schoolyards into ecological laboratories. Enjoy!
