Have you ever wondered if a plant can grow without soil, air, or water? This video features experiments designed to answer this very question by trying to grow plants without one of these elements in each experiment. These experiments show that while plants can grow without soil, they cannot grow without water and air.
This video satisfies the 5-LS1-1 requirement of fifth-grade science proficiency.
Students who demonstrate understanding can: 5-LS1-1 Support an argument that plants get the materials they need for growth chiefly from air and water.
