Grades 9–12. In this 2-part kit, students observe 2 phenomena: cytoplasmic streaming and the locomotive movement of Physarum polycephalum plasmodium. Based on these observations, students make claims about how Physarum responds to its environment. They are asked to consider the mechanisms that drive the movement of Physarum and predict how it will respond to several different substances. Students work as a class to design a testing strategy to determine the effects of the 5 substances on the locomotion of the plasmodium. They use the evidence to evaluate their predictions. Kit accommodates 10 student groups and includes FREE 1-year access to digital resources that support NGSS instruction.
