What are the three main parts of a plant?
Plants have different parts like roots, stems, and leaves that help them grow. Seeds may be spread by wind, water, or animals to help plants grow in new places. Photosynthesis is a process that helps plants turn sunlight into food.
Seeds, Plants, & Photosynthesis
Plant Parts: Plants have different parts that help them grow and survive. The most basic parts of a plant are roots, stem, leaves, and flowers. Seed Dispersal: Seed dispersal is the way seeds are spread away from the parent plant. Seeds can be spread by the wind, water, animals, or even exploding seed pods! Photosynthesis: Photosynthesis is a process plants use to make their own food. Plants use energy from the sun, carbon dioxide from the air, and water from the soil to turn into sugar and oxygen.
Photosynthesis is used by plants to make glucose from carbon dioxide and water. This process occurs in the chloroplasts of a plant. The seeds of some plants are dispersed by animals. This is known as zoochory. Plants can also use mechanical means to disperse their seeds. This is known as barochory.
