Big Idea (What is the overall theme of the Learning Center?

): The
overall theme of the learning center is Plants. Students will learn how
to use a homemade clinometer to calculate the height of a plant and
students will know how photosynthesis helped that plant get to that
height (how photosynthesis helps the plant grow).

Essential Question (What are the questions you would expect

students to be able to answer when they finish the activities in your
learning center?): How does Photosynthesis explain the growth of a
plant and how can you calculate the growth of a plant?
