Addresses AP® Biology Big Ideas 2 and 4 and Essential Knowledge 2.A.3, 2.B.2, 2.C.3, 4.A.4, and 4.A.6. Students explore transpiration by using a potometer to measure water loss in bush bean seedlings. Then, to extend their new knowledge of transpiration, students design an investigation into the various environmental factors that affect plant transpiration rate. Materials for a class of 32 students working in groups of 4.
Explore transpiration as a mechanism for plant growth and dynamic homeostasis.

With the current AP® Biology curriculum, you are no longer limited to 12 prescribed labs in your classroom—meaning you can now teach the course using labs that fit your classroom and student interests.
Carolina is proud to be the only supplier with unique kits and activities that are exclusively designed for the new AP® curriculum. Our Carolina Investigations® series is specifically aligned to the Big Ideas and Science Practices and was built from the ground up with the help of expert AP® teachers.
Focused on making inquiry easier in your classroom, Carolina Investigations® kits feature activities that allow students to take a guided approach to inquiry while building their Science Practices and connecting the Big Ideas. These kits offer an initial skill-building activity that features a more traditional classroom approach. This is followed by a secondary investigation using a unique experimental design template to help guide those student-driven, inquiry-based learning opportunities.
