Use a small vial or medicine cup to scoop solution from the jar and pour it into a large test tube. When the tube is full, cover its mouth with your finger or thumb, invert it, and place it in the jar. Do not remove your finger until the mouth of the tube is submerged in the solution. Ask an adult to use a sharp knife to cut the stem of the sprig of pondweed at an angle (Figure 4b). Be sure the stem is cut in the solution so that air cannot enter the plant. Tie the sprig of pondweed (still in the solution) to a second glass rod or large nail.

Remove the lid from the glass and have the adult lower the burning splint into the gas above the liquid, as shown in Figure 7a. What happens to the flame? What does this indicate about the gas produced when yeast acts on sugar? A better way to test for carbon dioxide is shown in Figure 7b. Put a small quantity of the same mixture of sugar, water, and yeast in a test tube. Place a one-hole rubber stopper with a short length of glass tubing in the tube’s mouth. Use a length of plastic or rubber tubing to carry any gas released by the yeast and sugar water mixture to another piece of hard plastic or glass tubing that is immersed in a vial containing limewater.

Nitrogen-fixing bacteria live in the soil and on the roots of legume plants such as beans, peas, clover, and peanuts. The bacteria change nitrogen gas, which makes up 78 percent of Earth’s atmosphere, into nitrates. The water-soluble nitrates are absorbed by plants and converted into protein, one of the essential components of living tissue. 1 The Diversity of Life in a Square Meter Materials: meadow or woodland hammer stakes string meterstick or yardstick notebook and pencil or pen garden spade or shovel magnifier or dissecting microscope (optional) field guides (optional) Find a meadow or woodland, and with the permission of the owner, mark off a square meter or square yard of ground.
