Environment and Fast Plants Hands-On Classroom Investigations

Wisconsin Fast Plants are very responsive to their environments, and plant phenotypes will reflect the environment in which a plant was raised. Growing Fast Plants with varying environmental conditions (example: soil content, fertilizer, temperature) provides opportunity for learning about the relationship between plant phenotype and environmental variation.

How can I teach about the environment using Wisconsin Fast Plants?

  • Learn more about factors of the physical, chemical, and biological environments
  • Observe live plants in our #NSTA18 booth that represent environmental effects on plant growth

What kits can I use for investigating effects of the environment on growth of Fast Plants?
