Task 3

How is water transported in plants?


We know that plants need water to grow and keep healthy but how is water transported in plants? 

Read through the PowerPoint below and find out!

Now you know how water is transported around a plant and why water is important for all the parts of a plant. Your next task is to complete the worksheet below in your book. You can present it any way that is best for you.

How long does the process of transportation take?


Get your family involved with this exciting science experiment at home. Read through the method before you start so you are sure about what to do.

In the experiment you would need a carnation flower but don't worry if you do not have one, you can do the experiment with celery! 


If you require any resources for this experiment, please email me. smiley

Once you have completed your experiment, answer the questions below.


  1. How long did it take for the carnation flower/celery to change colour?
  2. What do you think would happen if you repeated your experiment with a carnation flower/celery with a stem half as long? Explain why.


Take a picture of your experiment and send it in to me. I always love seeing your amazing work. Have fun yes
