Plant Science Projects for Different Grade Levels

The Kitchen Pantry Scientist Liz Heinecke wants to help your kids get ahead in school. She brought three different plant-based experiements, one for elementary school students, one for middle school and one for high schoolers to try.

Elementary School: “Vegetable Vampires”

This project demonstrates “capillary action”, as the leaves draw the colored water up inside.

Middle School: “Leaf Pounding”

You can use hammers and cloth to make some cool plant prints.

High School: Vegetable Chromatography

Students can separate out the different colors in leaves and plants.
