Learning time​

Kids learn by watching short, engaging video lessons.

Plants are amazing and they help humans in so many different ways. One of the most important things they do is provide food not only for humans but also for animals too. And they also have to make food for themselves too in a process that's called photosynthesis. Now, you might not realize this because you definitely haven't seen it, but plants help with the oxygen cycle. This actually means that plants clean the air for us. They take in the carbon dioxide that we breathe out and they give out oxygen which helps humans to breathe. Plants also provide shelter for lots of animals. Here, you can see that this koala is eating and being sheltered by a plant. Lastly, a lot of plants are used in human medicine. You may have heard about the importance of using aloe vera if you have sunburn or that lavender can help you feel sleepy.
