1 All About Plants by Mrs. Staszowski’s 2 nd Grade Class

2 What is a plant ? by Jack Plants are living things that grow in most parts of the world. People all over the world could not live without plants. In photosynthesis, the plant makes food by using light from the sun, water and minerals from the soil, and a gas called carbon dioxide from the air.

3 Plant structure by Adell There are two different kinds of plants they are called herbaceous and woody. Most herbaceous plants have stems that are soft and the color green. Photo Credits: Courtesy of University of Illinois Extension Herbaceous Woody

4 Life Cycle by Daniel These are the ways a plant can grow. Annual plants- an annual plant grows in one season, example: tomato. Perennial plants- a perennial plant lives three or more years example: rose. Biennial plant takes two seasons to grow example: carrots. perennial annual biennial Photo Credit: Courtesy of University of Illinois Extension

5 Photosynthesis by Joshua Photosynthesis makes food from light, water, nutrients, and carbon dioxide. Plants make food for their leaves. Plants release oxygen into the air. Chlorophyll helps make the plant food. Photo Credit: Courtesy of University of Illinois Extension

6 Pollination by Alexis Pollination is the transfer of pollen from a pistil. Pollination starts the production of seeds.

7 Seeds by Tyler A seed is a part of a plant that makes a new plant. A seed needs water and dirt. Seeds are a major source of food for millions of people.

8 Roots by Andrew Roots are like a straw, and the flower “drinks” the water and nutrients from the dirt. The roots give the plant food. The roots keep the flower living. If there are no roots the plant falls over. The roots stick in the dirt to help flowers grow.

9 Stems by Derek Stems support the plant. The stem collects water and food. Woody stems are hard to bend.

10 Leaves by Kierra The leaf is the food making part of the plant. Most leaves are 1 to 12 inches, 2.5 to 30 centimeters. Some drugs come from leaves. People use certain leaves to make rope. Leaves also help make the air that we breathe. Photo Credit: World Book illustrations

11 Flowers by Angelina People enjoy flowers because they are beautiful and they help make seeds. Moths search for flowers. The crocus usually blooms every year. They bloom in the spring and summer. Photo Credit: World Book illustration by Allianora Rosse

12 Fruit by Noelle Fruit is a good snack for you to munch on. Fruit also has a lot of Vitamin C. Apples have about 5 seeds. Some types of fruits have a lot of sugar, like strawberries, cherries, plums, and blueberries. Some fruits grow on trees like apples and peaches.

13 Vegetable VS Fruit by TJ The fruit’s seeds are inside of the plant. An asparagus is a stem of a plant. A fruit is a stem of a plant. A fruit is a flower before it is a fruit. A vegetable is some part of the plant.

14 Room to Grow by Jacob All plants like to have room to grow. If they have space then they grow faster. At the bottom of the ground the roots are growing too.

15 Temperature by Harrison Plants grow indoors and outdoors with bright light. Some like cold and some like warm air. Too much water can kill the plants.

16 Light by Gina L. Plants need enough light. If they lean over then they need more light. If plants grow indoors they need hours of light each day.

17 Water by Gina C. Water is important to plants. Without water or too much water the plant dies. The plant needs soil and water to help it grow. You have to touch the soil to know if it needs water.

18 Air by Billy Plant stems carry water and food through the plant stem. Co2 goes into the plant. Oxygen goes into the air. Photo Credit: Courtesy of University of Illinois Extension

19 Nutrients by Lyndze Most of the nutrients that a plant needs are dissolved into water and then they get sucked up into the plant. Nutrients help the plant survive and grow. Photo Credit: Courtesy of University of Illinois Extension

20 Time by Devon Plants mostly grow outside. They need a certain amount of time to grow. Plants can be either a flower, tree, or fruit. Some take more time than others to grow.
