(Grade 4) – Plants need water to survive but too much will drown them – too little will kill them. Students can play this Survival Soak game to learn about the balance of water needed by plants. In this game they become part of the water cycle – using clouds to water their plants and waiting for them to reform through evaporation.
Find the right water balance for corn plants. If you do well, you will get more plants that need attention.
Students play this game to reinforce where their food comes from. Select the raw food source on the left, and then select the correct end product on the right. The concept is simple but the pictures pop up fast, so be ready to put your food knowledge to the test!
Where does your food come from?
Slide your tree back and forth, catching CO2, nutrients and water. The more you catch, the more oxygen your tree produces. Play this game to learn about the cycle of photosynthesis and how plants take in oxygen and release carbon dioxide. Avoid anything that is red – that’s plant disease and pollution! These elements will impact the plants health and ability to produce oxygen.
Help the tree capture the elements it needs to make its food through photosynthesis.
(Grade 3, 4) – The soil is alive with so many things that affect the health and strength of plants. Students play this Pac Man® like game to create the perfect balance of nutrients for a corn crop.
