Worksheet: Water Transportation in Plants
In this worksheet, we will practice describing the way in which water is transported within plants.
Roots help absorb water and nutrients from the ground. What other job do roots do to help plants survive?
- ARoots help plants make fruit.
- BRoots help plants make food.
- CRoots help plants reproduce.
- DRoots hold plants in the ground.
Flowering plants have stems to transport nutrients and water. Which part of a tree is used to transport water?
- AThe leaf
- BThe branch
- CThe bark
- DThe trunk
Which of these investigations would allow us to test whether plants with more leaves use more water?
- AWe place plants with different numbers of leaves in colored water and measure how much water they use.
- BWe place plants with different numbers of leaves in colored water and observe the color of their leaves.
- CWe place plants with the same number of leaves in colored water and observe the color of their leaves.
- DWe place plants with the same number of leaves in colored water and measure how much water they use.
A dye was transported to a flower in an experiment. Which other part of the plant was the colored water transported to?
- AThe roots
- BThe flower
- CThe leaf
- DThe stem
Which part of a plant helps transport water to the leaves and the flower?
Roots help absorb water from the soil. Pick another thing that plants need to absorb from the soil.
Which part of the carnation plant helps absorb water from the ground?
Some plants have fibrous roots and others have taproots. Taproots allow a plant to anchor firmly in the ground and draw up water from the soil.
Fibrous roots are thin and branch-like. Which of the plants shown below have taproots?
- ACarrot, radish, and onion
- BBeetroot, radish, and carrot
- CRadish and beetroot
- DOnion, beetroot, radish, and carrot
The diagram shows a model of a stem.
The stem contains cells called xylem which form a continuous tube from the leaf to the roots of the plant.
Why did the student use drinking straws to make the model?
