Bendy Carrots: An Osmosis Lab

In this activity, students will add salt to raw carrots and observe the water come out of the carrots. Students will have the opportunity to see how the water in plants and plant roots (carrots) responds to salt concentrations. Students will use their statistics skills to calculate percent mass loss, averages, and construct a graph to illustrate their findings. The resource includes a teacher pages and student pages in a word document format so that the lesson can be modified to meet the learners’ needs.
