Transpiration Experiments with 1st Grade

Did you know that the water cycle occurs in plants also?  1st grade students learned this when they placed stalks of celery in red water for a week.  The xylem vessels of the celery turned red as the water was drawn up through the stalk.  It was a lot of fun trying to remove long strands of xylem vessels from the celery!
