Today we have been learning about the function of the root and how this part keeps the plant healthy. We watched a short clip on the two different types of roots and discussed how these are different before exploring the roots of a viola plant and a carrot.
During science, the children carried out an investigation as a whole class to find out what the function of a stem is. Through adding different coloured dyes to the water the children were able to explore through the observations that the stem allowed the water to travel through to reach other parts of the plants. This was shown through the petals changing colour.
Head over to Team GG's blog to see some pictures of their amazing science investigations!
