The Green Machine Water keeps our Earth green and healthy! Seeds need water to sprout and become plants. Water usually flows down, but plants draw it up through roots, stems, and tree trunks! Like a magic potion, it dissolves vitamins from the soil, transports them up into the plant, and works with sunshine to make food in the leaves. When its job is done, it’s breathed out through little holes under the leaves as vapor in a process called transpiration. When plants need new water, they beg for a drink by drooping.

This is the mist you might see early in the morning either when cool air hits warmer air near the ground, or warm air hits cooler air close to the ground, depending on the season. The tiny droplets are quickly burned off when the sun warms them and they evaporate.

That’s why the weight of rushing water is used to turn generators that make electricity. The next time you turn on a light, consider that water may be its secret source!
