    These are the perfect tool to teach the 5th grade science standard, Matter Cycling through the Ecosystem 5.3.1. They are easy to use and help students really grasp this concept!

    These were fabulous! They were easy to set up and there are enough supplies to use for multiple classes. I used this in middle school and it was super easy to use. The instructions come laminated! I would highly recommend to any teacher who needs an easy photosynthesis lab.

    This kit is perfect for studying photosynthesis. Everything needed to assemble the greenhouses and complete the experiment is included, even electrical tape and pre-cut circles of card stock that fit the top of the cups perfectly. I am sure it would be more expensive and take hours of online and in-store shopping to purchase the materials individually.
