The problem of acid rain is quite often associated with its effects on aquatic systems. Unfortunately, acid rain can also have devastating effects on terrestrial environments as well. In this activity, students will examine the detrimental effects of acidic conditions on plants. Plants will be grown under normal soil conditions, mildly acidic soil conditions, and very acidic soil conditions. Through physical observation, students will determine if the acidity has any impact on the growth of the plant. Kit contains enough materials for 15 groups.
