Transpiration for kids 

The leaves’ stomata let out excess water from the plant that came from the roots. All day long plant roots absorb water from the soil and send it up through the plant‚Äôs veins to the leaves to enable photosynthesis, but the plant sends up more water than it needs. So, the leftover water escapes through the stomata in a process called transpiration. This is especially visible in the rainforest which causes it to be very humid.
