Crop Marks – Why won’t it grow?
This lesson plan includes an experiment bringing together archaeology and science. It aims to teach children that water is taken up to plants through the roots, and blocking these roots with archaeology (or in this case Lego!) can alter the growing pattern of plants. This is how we spot archaeological features in aerial photos.
