Description: In this activity, students will learn about the feedback mechanisms that plants use to maintain equilibrium using turgor pressure. Students will use critical thinking and problem solving skills to investigate the turgor response in M. pudica to different stimuli.  
Key Words: turgor pressure, system equilibrium in plants 
Grade Level: 6th, 7th, 8th 
Subject: Science
