Blasket – Experiment

Remember to get the materials you need for the Science experiment if someone is doing the shopping, add to their list…


We are going to investigate the role or function of the stem in the plant. The stem supports the leaves, flower and plants. It also transports fluids between the roots and all other parts of the plant.

You will need water, vase, white flowers, food colouring & scissors.

You have to cut your stem diagonally and place in vase. Half fill your vase with water. Add in 5 drops of food colouring and stir. Check on your flowers every day, or every 24 hours to note any changes.

Please take photos of your experiment and results and I will put them up on the website.
