by Robyn Lazar — last modified 2011-01-08 13:24 Share

Students use colored water and celery to observe the vascular bundles.


Celery Experiment

DAY 1

1.       What does the celery look like before the experiment?  Write two sentences describing the color, what if feels like, how hard it is, and anything else you think is important.

 

 

 

 

2.       Draw a picture of what the sliced open celery looks like.  Label XYLEM and PHLOEM.  USE COLORED PENCILS

 

 

 

 

 

 


3.       How much does the celery weigh before the experiment?  ________________________________

 

4.       What do you think will happen to the weight after the experiment?

 

 

5.       Why do you think that?

 

6.       Make a slide of your celery and draw a picture of what it looks like under the microscope

 

 

 

 

 

7.       What do you think it will look after the experiment?

 

8.       Why do you think that?

 

 

 

 

9.        Draw a picture of what your experiment looks like.  Label CELERY and COLORED WATER

 

 

 

 

 

 

10.   What do you think will happen overnight to the celery?

 

 

 

 

11.   Why do you think that will happen? 

 

DAY 2

 

1.       What does the celery look like after the experiment?  Write two sentences describing the color, what if feels like, how hard it is, and anything else you think is important.

 

 

 

 

2.       Draw a picture of what the sliced open celery looks like now.  Label XYLEM and PHLOEM.  USE COLORED PENCILS

 

 

 

 

 

 


3.       How much does the celery weigh after the experiment?  ________________________________

 

4.       What happened to the weight during the experiment?

 

 

5.       Why do you think that?

 

6.       Make a slide of your celery and draw a picture of what it looks like under the microscope

 

 

 

 

 

7.       What happened to the celery in this experiment?  ANSWER IN AT LEAST 3 COMPLETE SENTENCES

 

 

 

 

Questions:

1.       What does xylem do in a plant?

 

2.       What does phloem do in a plant?

 

 

3.       Why did the celery change in this experiment?

 

 

4.       What do you think would have happened to the celery if we had left it in the water longer?

 

 

 

5.       Why do you think that?

 

 

 

6.       Describe another experiment we could do in order to test how the plant uses xylem and phloem (hint… what other things could we change in this experiment to make it different?
