Recommended Grade Level(s): Appropriate for: Grades 11–12 Teaching Topics & Concepts: The Nutrient Solution in Hydroponics (Environmental Service Systems) NJCCCS & Common Core Standards Addressed: • 9.3.ST‐ET.3. Apply processes and concepts for the use of technological tools in STEM. • 9.3.12.AG‐ENV.4 .Demonstrate the operation of environmental service systems (e.g., pollution control, water treatment, wastewater treatment, solid waste management and energy conservation). • 9.3.12.AG‐PL.1. Develop and implement a crop management plan for a given production goal that accounts for environmental factors. • 9.3.12.AG‐PST.5. Use control, monitoring, geospatial and other technologies in AFNR power, structural and technical systems. • CRP5. Consider the environmental, social and economic impacts of decisions. • Career-ready individuals understand the interrelated nature of their actions and regularly make decisions that positively impact and/or mitigate negative impact on other people, organization, and the environment. They are aware of and utilize new technologies, understandings, procedures, materials, and regulations affecting the nature of their work as it relates to the impact on the social condition, the environment and the profitability of the organization. Objective: Within this unit, students are exposed to the different tools to measure pH/EC and will understand how to manage the specification ranges within the grow lab greenhouse to properly grow and support the varieties being grown. They will analyze pH and EC, understand the importance of nutrients and what each of the elements contribute to for plant function and growth. Essentials Questions: • What do plants need to grow? • How do plants grow differently in altered/changed/different environments? • How can we determine the amount of nutrients that are within a fertilizer/nutrient mix? Enduring Understandings: • The importance of each essential nutrient within the hydroponic reservoirs • Students will understand and notes the deficiencies in the plants being grown as well as others • Students will understand the proper adjustments to make to reservoir/ambient environmental conditions for plant success and growth • Understand what pH/EC are and the adjustment/specifications needed • Students will understand how to determine percentages, values, percent relationships, quotients, initial and final values, % change, equation, quantity within nutrient mix • Students will understand the transfer of water and nutrients through plants, how the external environment impacts plants and how plants impact the external environment as well This content is being brought to you by the Ward's World, Science By You program.
