Plant Growth Science Games

In this series of games, your students will learn about how plants acquire their material for growth chiefly from air and water. Plant Growth learning objective — based on NGSS and state standards — delivers improved student engagement and academic performance in your classroom, as demonstrated by research.

Scroll down for a preview of this learning objective’s games and the concepts.

Concepts Covered

Plants obtain the material for growth mostly from air and water. Plants process matter they have formed from air and water to maintain their internal conditions.

Photosynthesis occurs when plants absorb energy from sunlight through their leaves. During photosynthesis, light energy from the sun is changed into stored chemical energy that a plant can use to grow. Photosynthesis is a chemical process that forms plant matter from the energy in sunlight as well as air and water.

Soil does not provide most of the material needed for plant growth. Soil provides support and some nutrients for plant growth. Nutrients are materials that plants and animals need to live and grow.
