Presentation about Water Transportation in Plants

Still image for this video
Lesson input about Water transportation and optional science investigation.

Lesson powerpoint (as above.. if you want to go through and read yourself).

How does water get from the roots to leaves of a plant? | Primary Biology - Plants

Task 1.

Draw a diagram and explain how water is transported in plants.

 

Task 2:

Explain and summarise your observations from the science investigation (from the video or from your own investigation).

OPTIONAL Water Transportation in Plants  Experiments

 

If you are able to, have a go at doing your own transportation experiment at home using plants, celery or cabbage leaves and placing them into coloured dyes, and leaving them overnight. 

 

If you want to do an extra level of science challenge and create your own investigation, then place your plants in different locations or temperatures, make a prediction and record your findings.

Alternatively, you could try an experiment based on how plants transport water through  capillary action experiment using water and kitchen roll:
