Space Plants!

Instructional Resource

NASA is growing plants in space! Your students can explore NASA’s Veggie plant growing system while discovering the very simple materials that plants need to survive. With this resource, your students will use a collaborative, scaffolded approach to construct an argument that plants get the materials they need for growth chiefly from air and water.

This grade-five resource aligns with:

LS1 From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes

5-LS1-1 Support an argument that plants get the materials they need for growth chiefly from air and water.
