Wisconsin Fast Plants® Investigating Artificial Selection Using Plant Populations Kit



Regular price $133.00

Grade 6–College. For a class of 32 students. Previously titled Hairy's Inheritance: Competing to Make the Hairiest Fast Plant Kit, this open-ended experiment (perfect for AP® Biology) utilizes inquiry and cooperative learning. The activities can be used to study the process of science, natural selection, plant breeding, genetics, plant growth, and reproduction. Starting with the standard Wisconsin Fast Plants® seed stock, students use a quick, simple method to count leaf hairs and select the hairiest plants to produce seed for the next generation. Comparison of the average number and distribution of leaf hairs in both generations enables students to describe the pattern of inheritance for hairiness and to test an hypothesis. Experiment time varies—typically 55 days to grow and evaluate 2 generations.
