Teacher Notes
Activity: What Makes Plants Grow?
http://www.soil-net.com
This activity helps students begin to understand the relationship
between plants, plant growth/health and the soil.
Text books may often underplay the crucial impact soil has upon
plants, in providing a source of nutrients for the roots, in
providing water and in providing an anchorage for the roots.
In addition to the qualities noted, plants may also need shelter
from wind and excessive temperatures. Plants suit themselves to
their environments - for instance the ‘leaves’ of succulents can
retain water in hot climates; cacti can do this as well as
protecting themselves from grazing animals.
