Tree Study. Tree Roots~K-1 Grade Lesson

Learn how a tree uses it's roots to drink and move water up to the leaves.

What Do Roots Do?  by Kathleen V. Kudlinski

Investigate how roots "drink" by dipping the edge of a piece of paper towel into water (food coloring optional).  I recomned food coloring because it will help you see the ater climb. The water will climb up the paper towel.

Record what you did using this simple Science Lab Recording Sheet.

Create roots by cutting and gluing yarn.
