In our life science unit, students have been learning about the structures of plants. Today we set up an experiment to look more closely at the vascular tissue in plants. We are trying to figure out if the amount of leaves on a particular plant changes the amount of water the plant absorbs. We set up our experiment using three pieces of celery: one with all of its leaves, one with one leaf, and one with no leaves. Today students created their hypothesis and helped set up the experiment. Tomorrow, we will analyze the results!
