Worksheet Overview

Parts of a plant


Flowering plants have different parts that do different jobs.


 Tomato plant in a pot       Sunflower      Poppy


Some of the main parts of a plant are:


Roots - These are below the ground in the soil. The roots keep the flower secure and soak up water from the soil to feed the plant. 


Stem - the long, thin, green stem carries the water up from the roots to the different parts of the plant. 


Leaves - the big, green leaves soak up the light from the sunshine that gives the plant energy. 


Flowers - the colourful flower attracts insects. This is where the fruit or seeds usually grow. 


We can use what we know about plants to compare and sort them.
