Rising Salt

Rising Salt

This hard-copy unit includes a downloadable PDF resource and an assessment rubric. It encourages students to explore how living things are affected by environmental changes that farmers might face. Available by purchase, the unit links science with literacy in the classroom. Through hands-on investigations, students explore how physical conditions of the environment, including types of watering and salinity, affect growth and survival of living things. With support they plan and conduct an open investigation and design solutions to improve agricultural sustainability.
