Summer is here and it is the perfect time to go outside to play. It is also a great time to go on nature trails to see animals, plants, and flowers. My son and husband love to work in our garden in the backyard. They have a feeling of pride when they see vegetables arrive during the summer months.
I love to make connections with what my son is experiencing. Since he has been working in the garden, I wanted to show him how plants get their water through an awesome celery experiment for kids. He has done this experiment before. However, we did it again because it is one of his favorite experiments and it is fun to do. Also, it is a wonderful refresher on science vocabulary such as gravity and capillary action.
How Plants Get Their Water
My son wanted demonstrate the experiment via video. He takes you step-by-step through the process. You most likely have all the materials for this activity in your kitchen right now.
