PARTS OF A PLANT

The main parts of a plant are roots, stem, leaves, and flowers. Each part has an important role to play in the growth of the plant.

Learn what role plants have in the food chain!

Roots are the part of the plant that are normally found under the soil. Their main function is to keep the plant in the soil by acting as an anchor. Roots also take in water and nutrients to help the plant grow.

The stem of the plant provides support for the leaves and takes water and minerals to the leaves. The stem also takes food from the leaves to the other parts of the plant.

The leaves of a plant are very important for making food for the plant through a process called photosynthesis. The leaves absorb light energy and along with carbon dioxide and water, change it into food. The leaves also pass oxygen into the air through pores in their surface.

Flowers are where pollination happens so that fruit and seed grows and new plants can be produced. Petals are usually the colorful part of the flower which attract insects to visit and pollinate it.
