Lesson: Tropism Testing (Middle School)

Posted on May 27, 2020 at 9:44 AM by Virginia Smith


This lesson lets students explore the effects of gravity on plant growth, a process called geotropism or gravitropism. Since this activity involves the growing of plants, the time required spans over several days. "Tropism Testing" is found in CAP's AEX for Middle School Life Science booklet, Lesson 4. Find this lesson HERE.
