Carrot Taproot Absorption

 This shows you that water was being absorbed by the bottom or tip of the carrot and traveling up the inside of the carrot. This is how plants and trees get water from their roots. -

We spent some time talking about roots in Botany. So, this week the Little Lady is doing an "Absorption Carrot Taproot Experiment" and watching the water be absorbed up through the carrot root.

A carrot , water, and blue dye.

24 hours later

48 hours later
The dye was showing on the outside of the carrot in little spots all along the upper part of the carrot. .

We decided to just cut it open to see what was going on slowly with the carrot.
