Short description: Children will discover how important water is for plants and learn about plants’ behaviour in different types of soil through games and experiments. What is the most suitable type of soil to grow plants that need a lot of water such as those in the vegetable garden? How do plants take water from the ground? Do they use roots that have absorbing power, but what does this mean? Let’s find out this by experimenting with different materials: some absorb water, some do not!Children will make a paper tree in order to understand how plants absorb water. Then a movement game will help children find out that roots also have the difficult task of anchoring the plant firmly into the ground.

Target age of children: 3-5 years old
