Learning time​

Kids learn by watching short, engaging video lessons.

The life cycle of a plant is a very interesting process. It all starts with the seed. The seed is planted inside the soil and given sunlight and water. And with this, the roots begin to grow underneath the soil. Once the roots have grown and they're anchoring the plant into the soil, the stem begins to grow towards the sunlight. As the plant grows even more, leaves start to grow, and leaves are what are important when it comes to the plant making its own food. After a little while growing, some plants will form a flower, and flowers are important because they help to pollinate. Pollination happens when the male part of the plant travels to the female part of the plant, then the plant will produce new seeds. When the plant dies, the new seeds it created are spread by wind or animals and the cycle starts all over again.
