360 Science: Rate of Transpiration
360Science™ blends the best of student-engaging digital content with easily adaptable hands-on labs to offer your students a uniquely comprehensive learning experience.
In this lab experience, students observe, count, and quantify the stomata, which regulate transpiration. Pooling the class data, students determine the average number of stomata per square millimeter of the plant species being tested. Students also determine the rate of water loss by calculating the percent mass change of whole plants over the span of four days.
Editable, differentiated instructions range from a time-sensitive prescriptive lab to full open inquiry, and robust online videos and content—including a virtual reality (VR) simulation—help students prepare for and better understand the labs they’re conducting.
