Translocation and transpiration are explained by our easy to make model!
Plants transport water and minerals from their roots (transpiration) and sugars from their leaves (transpiration) using specialised transport tissues - xylem and phloem. Our model shows how these tissues carry out transport and how these parallel systems differ.

First, students make their colourful models of a plant and its vascular tissue. They then use the model to look at how translocation and transpiration take place in a plant.
The model covers: transpiration, translocation, transpiration stream, xylem and phloem.
