Educator Resources for What Plants Need
What Plants Need captures students’ attention and engages them through interactive simulations of plant life. This interactive teaching tool promotes critical thinking, and also boosts creativity and problem solving skills as students become involved in the importance and versatility of plant life. We recommend using this game to help students understand an array of biology topics such as plant environments, light reaction, DNA transcription, glycolysis, and photosynthesis.

In this lesson plan, students use a free online science interactive to explore how a plant’s environmental conditions affect its growth and development. Students work in teams to adjust the resources the plant receives and view the results. They will learn what happens to plants in green light, or if different gases are present in the atmosphere.
