Contains 22 inquiry-based labs with minimum cost and equipment needs. The labs are designed to encourage a holistic understanding of plants-what plants do daily and through the seasons and years, as well as the plants' roles in the ecosytems. Lab investigations range from outdoor to in-lab; experimental to observational to discussion; short-term to long-term; partly to wholly student designed. The labs include learning objectives, an introduction and procedures, thought questions, and an extended assignment or investigation. Appendices cover the metric system, data presentation, and statistics (t-test).
