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.

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.

Where’s the Water?: Acting Out Science Cycles
Young scientists transform themselves into rivers, oceans, clouds, and drops of water in order to explore the water cycle. After assigning and explaining to students their different roles in the activity, the teacher reads aloud a narrative describing the different stages of the water cycle while the class acts out each event.

"Lettuce" Learn About the Water Cycle
Young scientists investigate the water cycle through a lettuce seed experiment. For this experiment, learners plant lettuce seeds inside of a ziplock bag in order to create a small greenhouse. They observe condensation and precipitation, and have the option of weighing the ziplock bags and recording their data over time.

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.

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

Study Jams! The Water Cycle
Will tomorrow's soccer game be rained out? That depends on the water cycle. An animated feature explains precipitation, evaporation, transpiration, and condensation with diagrams and dialogue between Sam and RJ as they huddle under a jacket to keep from getting wet!

AP: Chapter 36: Transport in Plants
When you need a review worksheet for your AP biologists on water and nutrient transport in plants, this one is for you! From the simple stuctures involved to the complex mechanisms that make it happen, the details of transport are addressed with short-answer questions.

Changing Planet: Withering Plants - Stressing Over Lost Water
Expectant earth scientists examine the bottom side of a leaf and learn the role of the stomata. They consider the gas exchange that occurs through these structures and relate how the climate is changing to its impact on food crops. This lesson could be incorporated into a study on climate change or in a biology class that is studying transpiration in plants.

Water Cycle Word Study
Examine the written similarities in the words used to describe the water cycle. The focus is on suffixes and prefixes as a way to gain understanding of the new vocabulary terms. Some of the words included are evaporation, transpiration, precipitation, accumulation, and condensation.

What Is the Water Cycle?
Small groups place sand and ice in a covered box, place the box in the sunlight, then observe as evaporation, condensation, and precipitation occur. These models serve as miniature water cycles and demonstrations of the three phases of matter that water is found in: solid, liquid, and gas.

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
For this water cycle worksheet, 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.
3rd - 4th Language Arts 55 Views 507 Downloads
Students investigate and study the different systems of a plant. In this biology lesson, students define, transpiration, roots, xylem and other important parts of a plant cell. They discuss the process a plant goes through taking up water and processing it.
