Investigating water transportation in plants in Year 3

This week we have been investigating how water travels through plants. We put white roses into beakers filled with water, and added strong gel food colouring to the water, red, blue and purple. We placed one flower in the fridge, one in a sunny place and one just in the classroom. We thought about how the temperature might affect how quickly the water travels through the flower. We watched over the course of three days to see how they changed
colour! We discovered that the flower with the blue food colouring in the hot place dyed more quickly, the hotter the temperature, the quicker the water travels
