Here’s what author Maxine Anderson has to say about this activity:

“Leaves not only help a plant make its own food. Leaves also help plants collect moisture from the soil. Why? Because more leaves mean more space in a plant for water to go. More space for water to go means more will be collected. In this experiment you’ll see if a plant with leaves can move water from the soil better than a plant without leaves.”
