Plant Systems

What makes up a plant???

What are the different parts of a plant?

A plant is made up of parts such as leaves, stem and roots.

How do the different parts work together to keep the plant alive?

LEAVES

  • Leaves trap sunlight to make food for the plant
  • Leaves take in oxygen and gives out carbon dioxide

STEM

  • The stem helps to support the plant. It holds the leaves up so that they can get sunlight to make food.
  • The stem transports food made from the leaves and water and mineral salts absorbed from the roots.

ROOTS

  • Roots hold the plant firmly to the soil.
  • They absorb water and mineral salts for the plant.
