We wanted to find out how water moves around the trees that we were looking at in the school meadow.
So we used a full piece of celery (this was a better size for our nature table than a real tree) and put it into a container full of red coloured water.
We left it for a day and then watched the results every morning.
If you look closely you can see where the water from the vase has moved.
It started at the roots and made its way all the way to the leaves a the very top of the stem.
To make coloured water just add a few drops of food colouring to tap water.
Room 18 went on a walk to the meadow and discovered lots of autumn signs around us. We chose a leaf each and brought it back to the classroom to analyse.
We discovered that there are lots of different types of trees in the school meadow. We found:
Horse Chestnut leaves
Some boys and girls found the leaves at home and put them onto our autumn table matching them up to the tree they belonged to.
