    Try doing an experiment growing plants in different light. Make sure you start with the same kind of plants about the same size. You want ones with green leaves. Place one plant in a window that gets sunlight, another in a dark place like a closet, and another one in a place that does not get direct sunlight just artificial light in your classroom. Make sure you water all of the plants and take care of them the same. After a few days bring them all together for the students to compare the differences in leaf color and size. The students can journal their observations. Do this every few days for a few weeks. Have students draw conclusions about why plants need light to grow and what kind of light is the best.
