D why not see if you can get a couple different varieties of certified seed donated? In my mind it would make it a whole lot more scenitfic and model a true field trial.

I will have to see what I can come up with. Closest place to get certified that I know of is 40 miles away (I get mine there, but only once a year). I have about 20 lbs left in the bottom of my drill from earlier this spring, thought I'd try it. Any other suggestions on how to make it more realistic/experiential without getting too complicated or requiring too much background knowledge from the kids?

For the amount of seed you need, I"ll bet contact via letter, email, or a phone call to explain your project would get you a big enough sample sent free to you. In fact, the "writing" portion could be a student project by itself. Maybe have them do research first and explain to the seed dealer why they chose a certain variety.

Another concept.....have them ASK for a recommendation of a variety. Different strokes for different folks? Stroke the ego? They might go for a full-fledged plot test, along with the box project. Compare the data.
