This resource provides a set of videos and a practical investigation aimed at supporting working scientifically in the classroom and relating science to real world experiences.
In the first video Professor Brian Cox joins a teacher to find out how to set up and run an investigation to find out if plants need soil to grow. Children try to germinate and grow plants from a seed using a variety of different materials instead of soil.
Further videos show Brian Cox visiting an Industrial farm to find out about how they grow vegetables in a building and meeting a researcher looking at soil health.
A written resource, provided by Science and Plants at Schools, (SAPS), guides teachers in running the investigation in class. This resource has been provided by the Royal Society.
