How plants Absorb Water: An experiment

20140517-094627.jpg

After talking about the parts of a plant, we tried a fun experiment this week with some cabbage leaves to show our class how water travels up a plant and into the leaves. Most people predicted that the leaves would change colour. Some guessed that the leaf would grow so we measured them to see if there were any changes. The leaves did absorb the colour but did not grow. I was hoping the colour change would be more dramatic, we may have to try again next week with some celery!
