Moriah Early Childhood Students Are Scientists

The Moriah kindergarten children became scientists this week as they experimented with roots, stalks and leaves. They know that the roots suck up the water and nutrients that provide nourishment for the rest of the plant, but how could they track the movement through the roots into the stalk/ stem and leaves? Celery stalks and white carnations were immersed into vases of water. Using food coloring, the water in the various vases was dyed. One vase contained blue water, one red water and the control had clear water. Slowly, the water crept its way up the stalks or stems. It was amazing that the students could track the progress of the colored water as it moved up toward the leaves and flowers. After a day, the paths of the dyed water became obvious, as students witnessed the stalks, leaves and flowers turn colors. Of course the control carnation with clear water remained white. The intricacies of Hashem’s creations are astounding.
