Product Description
This recording sheet will support your study of plants! We learn that stems are like a straw - they suck up the water for the plant. What better way to illustrate it than the tried and true "Plant a Rainbow" experiment.

To conduct the experiment, put celery or white flowers (carnations work well) in colored water and watch! The stem will suck up the colored water and the flower or celery leaves (depending on which you use) will change to the color of the water in which it is placed.

In my experience, both have successfully worked BUT...the celery changes faster and if the flowers are older, they are less likely to work as well.

The recording sheet has two options - celery or flowers. I plan to do both and copy it front and back but you may just choose to do one.
Students will illustrate their observations and the date. There is also a place for them write down what happened and why they think it happened.

Have fun!
