Science

Welcome back! I hope you've all had a restful break. This week, in Science, you will be investigating the way in which water is transported within plants by observing the transport of food colouring through a flower stem.

 

You will need:

 

- Bright white flowers such as Carnations, Chrysanthemums or Gerberas with stems of equal length.

- Food colouring ( darker colours work well).

-Tablespoons.

-Beakers of the same size filled with 100ml water.

- Access to places with different temperatures (e.g. over a heater, normal room temperature, a fridge).

-Thermometers.

 

You will be investigating the rate of water transportation in different temperatures. Look through the PowerPoint below, this will help you set up your experiment.
