Water Transportation !

In year 3 this week we have been looking at the different functions of stems, roots and leaves in helping plants to repair and grow. Pictured above is our celery experiment using food colouring and water to see how water is transported throughout the plant. This afternoon we had a look at the results and were able to see the holes and track the channels of the water being transported through the celery stick. 

For the next few weeks we are also seeing the effect of the amount of water on plant growth... our windowsills in class are full of experiments lately and the children are loving checking on them each morning. Watch this space for the results!
