In this resource, students are tasked with the ability to find a way to keep their plant alive during a five-day trip. They have to create a package that will meet the needs of the plant as it “travels” for five days. After five days, the students check the health of the plant to determine if their designed package worked.

Printing Notes:

These materials are offered in black and white (the digital is in color). I would suggest printing “as image” to avoid any potential issues.
