Students participate in a Science Experiment-Exploring how plants absorb water!
Some of our home-schooled students have been exploring how plants absorb water during their science lesson.
Firstly, the children got to understand how a plant obtains water by discussing why there is a need to water plants as well as where water for plants usually come from.
Using pictures, the class then discussed the differences between the roots, helping students understand why diffuse roots are good for places such as marshes, swamps, and sand dunes, while tap roots are good for places such as prairies and rocky deserts.
This followed on by an explanation on plants absorbing nutrients from the soil and that these nutrients help the plant make the food it needs to survive.
