Basic Needs of Plants Sun Water Soil Air Click here to go to Plant Parts
Plants Need: Air Plants use air to make their food. Back to Basic Needs of Plants
Plants Need: Sunlight Plants turn the sun's light into food. Back to Basic Needs of Plants
Plants Need: Water Water gives plants the vitamins they need. Back to Basic Needs of Plants
Plants Need: Soil Soil is the same thing as dirt. Soil helps hold the plants up. Soil gives water and food to the roots. Back to Basic Needs of Plants

Plant Parts: What do different plant parts do? Roots Roots act like straws absorbing water and minerals from the soil. They make seeds so we can grow new plants. Stem Stems do many things. They support the plant. They keep the plant in the soil. It also collects moisture from the soil. Leaf Most plants' food is made in their leaves. It carries moisture and food to all parts of the plant. Flower This part makes food for the plant from the sun's rays and carbon dioxide.
Life Cycle of a Plant First the seed is planted. Next the seed is cared for with water and sunlight. Last the seed becomes a healthy plant.
