How does water move in plants?
In Science this week, year 3 have been investigating how water is transported through plants so they conducted a simple experiment that involved food colouring, water and paper towels. Firstly, they watched a video to demonstrate the experiment and then wrote their own predictions about what they thought might happen. Then they wrote their method which would tell someone else how to set up and carry out the experiment. Finally, they watched our experiment to observe what happened and wrote conclusions. They noticed how quickly the water travelled through the paper towel, just like it would if it was a plant stem.
