Water Transportation Investigation

Yesterday in science, we learnt about how water is transported through a stem. Evaporation of water from the leaves causes the stems to suck up more water.

We wanted to find out if temperature changes how quickly water is sucked up by a stem. So we set up an experiment.

We used food colouring in water so we could tell if the water had traveled up the stems. Then, we put one flower in a hot temperature (above a radiator), one at room temperature and one in the fridge. We plan to observe our experiment to see what happens and then use our findings to write a conclusion!
