  • Question 1

Which part of the plant is the arrow pointing to?

 

CORRECT ANSWER
fruit
EDDIE SAYS
The arrow is pointing at an apple hanging on the apple tree. That's the FRUIT of the plant because it contains the seeds that could grow into another apple tree.
  • Question 2

Which part of the plant is the arrow pointing to?

 

CORRECT ANSWER
stem
EDDIE SAYS
The arrow is pointing at the STEM of a rhubarb leaf. Leaves and flowers are on the end of a stem. Inside the stem are lots of tubes carrying water to and fro.
  • Question 3

Which part of the plant is the arrow pointing to?

 

CORRECT ANSWER
root
EDDIE SAYS
The arrow is pointing at the ROOT of the carrot plant. That's the bit we eat - the carrot itself. Above the ground are the leaves which make the food that gets stored in the carrot root.
  • Question 4

Which part of the plant is the arrow pointing to?

 

CORRECT ANSWER
flower
EDDIE SAYS
The arrow is pointing at the FLOWER of the rose bush - that's a rose! Flowers are colourful to attract insects and they make nectar to make them want to come in to drink it. Why? That's another story!
  • Question 5

Which part of the plant is the arrow pointing to?

 

CORRECT ANSWER
flower
EDDIE SAYS
The arrow is pointing at the FLOWER of the cauliflower, which is the main bit we eat. The flowers start off in a big tight bunch but if you leave them there they grow up and separate and aren't as nice to eat.
  • Question 6

Which part of the plant is the arrow pointing to?

 

CORRECT ANSWER
branch
EDDIE SAYS
The arrow is pointing at the BRANCH of a tree. The branch holds up lots of twigs and leaves so that the leaves can get masses of sunlight and make food for the tree.
  • Question 7

Which part of the plant is the arrow pointing to?

 

CORRECT ANSWER
leaf
EDDIE SAYS
The arrow is pointing at the LEAF of this geranium plant, which is popular both in the garden and as a house-plant. The leaves are where the plant makes its food using the sunshine that falls on them.
