Colorful Plants

Well I totally screwed this one up because we didn't have enough "leaves" on our celery but it was a cute idea and the kids had apparently already done it before anyways.

But today we did a science experiment to show that plants absorb water through their roots.


Learn how plants absorb water through their roots with colored water and celery sticks.


Clear Glass Jars or Vases

Celery Stalks with Leaves


Food Coloring


Explain the experiment. We are going to learn how plans absorb water through their roots.

Separate and select celery sticks with leaves. Cut about quarter inch off the bottom.

Put water into glass jar.

Drop 3-4 drops of food coloring into water.

Place celery into jars. Stir very gently.

Make 2-3 observations. Check after an hour. After 4 hours. After 24 hours.
