Physical and Chemical Properties of Soil Environmental Science Lab Kit
Healthy soil provides structure and nutrients for plant growth and is a vital component of the hydrologic (water) cycle. Explore how the physical and chemical properties of soil impact soil quality with this two-part investigation. In the first part,...
Stream Macroinvertebrate Sampling Simulation - Student Activity Kit
What is the water quality of this stream? Is it polluted? Students use a sample of illustrated macroinvertebrates to determine the Biotic Index and the water quality of a simulated natural water source. Students also use the illustrated macroinverteb...
Discover Life in the Soil - Student Laboratory Kit
Hundreds of species of organisms are living right under your feet! According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, a single spadefull of rich garden soil contains more species of organisms than can be found above ground in the entire Amazon rain for...
Duckweed Population Study
Students can witness a population explosion right before their eyes as they nurture and experiment with living duckweed plants. Students start with a small number of plants and watch them reproduce vegetatively into a large matted colony, too numerou...
Landfill Decomposition Kit
Americans generate over 210 million tons of trash every year! One of the biggest decisions voters will need to make in the coming years is “what are we going to do with all this trash?” In this activity, students will set up different types of simula...
Common Uses of Rocks and Minerals Student Laboratory Kit
