The experience of watching seeds germinate and determining what might affect that germination is very revealing to students. Students use a variety of “liquids” on radish seeds to determine their impact on germination. The results will surprise students on how sensitive seeds can be to their surroundings. Teacher Notes, reproducible student handouts and all necessary chemicals and specialized equipment are provided.
