ABOUT THIS PRODUCT:

A fun and interactive way to teach water uptake by roots!

Use our innovative model to teach water uptake by the roots and into the xylem.

Your students make the specialized plant cells then use them to make a root. They can then follow how water is taken up by root hair cells and transported through the cell wall (apoplastic) or the cytoplasmic (symplastic) routes into the xylem. Students move model water molecules to visualize the alternative pathways. A great way to revise this topic.

Covers: root structure, Casparian strip, xylem structure, root hair cells, plant cell specialization.

You can link it to the Lovely Leaves set to show how transpirational pull operates to draw up water into the root.

Origami Organelles are downloadable paper models that you print and make as many times as you like! When you purchase a model, you are licensed for unlimited use on a single site or campus.
