Colored Carnations: Science 101:-)

Actually got this idea from someone on our GWMG FaceBook Page…Thanks Sherie…

I explained to Brianna that the flowers we used were cut from the plant.  Before they were cut they had roots.

What are roots? Roots help the plant stand up in the ground… But they also absorb the water from the soil and supply water to the plant (feed it).  Even without roots the stem of the flower still “drinks” up the water and provides it to the leaves and flowers.

I hear in 6-hours we should see some changes…  we will record our observations!

Directions:

  • Fill vases with water
  • Add  food coloring
  • Cut ends off white flowers and put a flower in each vase
