This Plant Part Exploration: Stems lesson plan also includes:
Explore water transport in plant stems using this fun experiment! Your scientists will start by reading Stems by Vijaya Bodach. Then, activate prior knowledge about plant stem functions and water transportation. Demonstrate this concept through an experiment with food coloring. Submerge various items (some are listed) in jars with colored water. Make predictions, observe what happened the next day, and analyze the data!
