Simulate the conditions of acid rain, saline soils, drought and erosion in the classroom. A complete introductory unit on environmental studies. Six experimental protocols lead your students through weeks of hands on, scientifically sound experimentation demonstrating current environmental concerns. Easily adaptable for use in biology courses and/or to accommodate independent study and honors level students within the standard course of study. This kit introduces students to sound scientific method processes. Once they have become familiar with experimental protocols, data collection, and data analysis they will be able to design their own experiments as a comfortable next step. A great way to introduce students to thinking like scientists and engage them in individualized science fair projects.
