Where does the water go when a plant is watered? With this experiment, children can discover for themselves how essential the functions of roots and stems are to plant growth. As the colored water is absorbed, students will be able to see how the water is absorbed into the plant and will be amazed when the petals of the carnation change color.
- 6 white carnations
- 8 plastic cups
- Food coloring (red, blue, and green)
- Knife (you'll need an adult helper for this)
