Activity Description of "Effects of U-V on Seeds"

Title Effects of U-V on Seeds
Audience 8-12; life science, biology; cross age instruction
Abstract I use this activity to introduce students to scientific researching and as a "check for understanding" of skills as they make connections between math and science. I also go into the elementary and middle school classrooms (grades 3-6) and facilitate those students completing this same activity. All results are returned to our classroom. Using their computer technology, my students compare and contrast individual class results against total results to help them understand the need for large sample sizes when doing research.
