How Much Water Does A Tree Transpire In A Day
High schoolers engage in a lesson of investigating the amount of water that is transpired in a one day cycle. They conduct research to find the purpose of transpiration and find information to explain the value to a plant and explain how transpiration effects the climate.

Transportation in Plants
Students investigate how plants transport water and nutrients through the plant. In this transportation in plants lesson plan, students use glass tubing, celery stalks, food coloring and leaves from plants to observe adhesion and cohesion of water up the tube and stalk.

Leaves, the Sun, and the Water Cycle
As a way to combine life and physical science, or simply as an investigation of plant transpiration, this lesson is sure to inspire! Middle schoolers capture the moisture given off by plants that are placed in different conditions. They relate the output to the surface area of the leaves.

Landscaping and Urban Forestry - Lesson 4 (Grades 5-6)
Students discuss reasons to plant trees and the best locations for cooling. They analyze two homes identifying types and locations of trees, and location of the central air conditioners. The benefits of shade, the process of transpiration are examined.

The Water Cycle
In this water cycle activity, students read an informational passage, observe a labeled diagram of the transpiration water cycle, and answer comprehension questions. Students answer seven multiple choice questions and write a story from the water's point of view.

The Water Cycle - Main Components
Present the water cycle to your middle schoolers with this instructional activity. After an anticipatory set, they participate in a Q & A session about the terms associated with the water cycle: evaporation, transpiration, condensation, and precipitation.

Virtual Lab: Plant Transpiration
Virtual labs are a nice change once in a while. Using this resource, beginning botanists visit a website where they set up an experiment comparing the transpiration rate of geranium seeds in humid, normal, warm, and windy environments. As they work online, they complete the worksheet.

Leaf it to Me
Pupils observe the effect of transpiration as water is moved from the ground to the atmosphere. They discuss the two methods that water moves from the ground to the atmopshere as part of the hydrologic cycle. Students are taught that transpiration is the evaporation of water from plant leaves.

Energy for Tree Growth
Students investigate a tree's need for water and sunlight to survive by conducting two experiments in small groups. They isolate the end of a leaf bearing twig in a sealed jar to discover the process of transpiration then look at growth differences in seedlings kept in the dark versus in the sunlight.

Capillary Action And Transpiration
Young scholars engage in a study of the concepts of biology with plants known as capillary action and transpiration. They conduct a simple experiment to demonstrate the concept. The instructional activity includes a background discussion led by the teacher just before the activity.
