Click on the image below to watch a short video showing water being transported through a plant.

  • Which parts of the plant are working?
  • What does this tell us about the needs of a plant?
  • Can you describe what has happened using a scientific word?

Do this experiment yourself! You could try using different coloured food colourings to see if certain colours work faster. You could also try using a celery stick instead of a flower! Don't forget to record your learning. Take a photo or a video, draw or write up your experiment for our gallery page.
