Learning time​

Kids learn by watching short, engaging video lessons.

Plants are made-up of lots of different parts which work together to keep them healthy. These parts include the roots, the leaves, the stem, and in some plants, the flower. You can find the roots underground and they suck up and absorb all of the water from the soil. The stem is like the backbone of the plant. It keeps the plant upright. It keeps the leaves steady and transports the water from the roots up to the plant. When it comes to the leaves, you can have all different shapes and sizes but it's important to remember that they all do the same thing. Leaves create food for the plant in a process that's called photosynthesis. Finally, some plants have flowers and flowers are responsible for producing seeds and attracting pollinators like bees. A pollinator is an animal that helps plants produce seeds.
