Description:

Learners explore capillary action in plants (such as plants ability to move water from roots to leaves) in an investigation called Paper Blooms. Placing paper flowers in water mixed with food coloring, learners observe how water moves through a flower. Students can then try the activity using different fluids such as soapy water or salty water. In the investigation Toothpick Tricks learners observe slightly different capillary action in simple models of flowers made with toothpicks.
