Science in Year 4

In Year 4 this week, we have been focussing on how water transports from the bottom of roots, through the xylem, to the tops of plants and trees.

For our experiment, we cut up pieces of celery to locate the xylem, then placed the celery into different cups of coloured water. We predict that the coloured water will travel up the xylem and the celery and leaves will change colour. We will have to wait until Monday to find out our results.
