2 Questions to think about… My Pals are Here! Science © 2008 Marshall Cavendish (Singapore) Private Limited What are the parts of a plant that help it to grow well? What are the functions of these parts?

3 leaf roots stem Plants are systems A plant is a system. Although they can be different in shape and size, most plants have the same main parts. Each plant part carries out an important job. My Pals are Here! Science © 2008 Marshall Cavendish (Singapore) Private Limited flower

4 What are the functions of plant parts? Leaves o Leaves come in many shapes, sizes, colours, textures and smells. My Pals are Here! Science © 2008 Marshall Cavendish (Singapore) Private Limited

5 What are the functions of plant parts? Leaves o Despite differences in appearance, leaves are made up of the same basic parts. o These are the leaf stalk, leaf blade and veins. My Pals are Here! Science © 2008 Marshall Cavendish (Singapore) Private Limited veins leaf stalk blade

6 What are the functions of plant parts? Leaves o Plants make their own food. o Food is made in the leaves. My Pals are Here! Science © 2008 Marshall Cavendish (Singapore) Private Limited

7 What are the functions of plant parts? Roots o Roots come in many shapes, sizes and colours too. My Pals are Here! Science © 2008 Marshall Cavendish (Singapore) Private Limited roots

8 What are the functions of plant parts? Roots o The roots hold a plant firmly to the soil. o Roots take in water and mineral salts for the plant too. o Mineral salts help the plants to grow well. My Pals are Here! Science © 2008 Marshall Cavendish (Singapore) Private Limited

9 What are the functions of plant parts? Roots o Some roots store food for the plant. My Pals are Here! Science © 2008 Marshall Cavendish (Singapore) Private Limited

10 What are the functions of plant parts? Stems o The stem supports a plant. o It holds the leaves up so that they can get sunlight to make food. My Pals are Here! Science © 2008 Marshall Cavendish (Singapore) Private Limited

11 What are the functions of plant parts? Stems o In some plants, the stem stores food. My Pals are Here! Science © 2008 Marshall Cavendish (Singapore) Private Limited

12 What are the functions of plant parts? Stems o Stems connect the leaves and roots of a plant together. o Water and mineral salts taken in by the roots travel up the stem to other parts of the plant. o Food formed by the leaves moves down the stem to other parts of the plant.
