Do Plants Breathe?
When you breathe, the action is easy to see because your chest expands. When you exhale, you breathe out carbon dioxide. Exhale against a window and you can see the water vapor. How about plants? Do plants breathe? Well...not exactly. Plants take in carbon dioxide and produce oxygen through a passive process called respiration. This simple activity will provide your child with visual proof that plants are producing the oxygen we need to survive.
