Green plant

How green is your thumb?

Here is a nifty plant simulation for the effects of various colors of light on the development of a plant. Your first screen at may require you to press ‘Maybe Later’ (it is worth registering, it’s a good collection of stuff). Then near the top, you’ll see a tab saying “Grow a Plant” – press that and have fun growing your plants in various colors and watching as the plants develop. Students may be surprised which color is the best. As mentioned in other simulation applications – it’s always best to have the students record their predictions first so when they modify them, they are cognitive of the thinking process.
