Experiments with Plants introduces 5th and 6th graders to the world of plants—what they are, how they reproduce and grow, how they add to scientific knowledge, and how they have influenced history. The book includes instructions on how students can grow plants without soil—hydroponically. One part of the book tells about all the animals—not just bees—that pollinate plants, and why some plant and animal species team up better than others to facilitate pollination. Other stories relate the contributions of pioneering plant geneticist Gregor Mendel, horticulturist and inventor George Washington Carver, and horticulturist Luther Burbank, as well as those of Thomas Jefferson.
