Transpiration - Luke


We did an experiment to see plants do transpiration.  We cut off leaves from plants and put them in a bag and set it in the sun.  After 15 minutes there was already some water inside the bag.  I know that during photosynthesis plants release water into the air.  When I opened up the bag the leaves were real wet.

Luke--Wow! Thanks for sharing this interesting experiment.

Do you think the water would have been the bag if you had put the bag in a dark place?

All those green leaves you see everywhere in the sunlight make all the food you and I and every living thing on this planet eats! Amazing stuff, huh!?

I'll be watching for your new posts . This is a great way for us to share the interesting things you are learning AND THINKING ABOUT.

Love, Grandma
