Plants

Plants are complex living things, just as we are.

Plant parts

There are many parts to a plant, including:

  • Flower: The flower is where bees land on the flower to get their nectar. In exchange, pollen will stick onto their legs, so when they go to the next flower, the pollen will drop off onto the other flower.
  • Stem: The stem holds the flower and the other parts of the flower above it off the ground like we have legs to hold us off the ground.
  • Roots: The roots gather all the nutrients and water that the plant needs from the soil.
  • Leaf: There are many leaves on a flower. Leaves are sometimes covered with a waxy layer, which protects it from the rain. When the rain drops on the leaf, it falls onto the roots which actually want the water.
