Oh! Hello kids and welcome to my show.
Today let's talk about plants.
Plants are very similar to humans and just like humans have different body parts doing different things, similarly, plants too have different parts for different functions.
Interesting, isn't it?
Let me tell you what the important parts of a plant are.
Leaves, bud, flower, stem, fruit and roots.
Let's take a closer look at the buds that protect the baby flower or the baby leaf from the harmful elements of nature.
This is a flower. It is the most beautiful part of a plant. It's usually colourful and attracts bees and other insects.
These are the leaves. The leaf is one of the most important parts of a plant.It has a green pigment called chloroplyll which absorbs the sunlight and makes food.
This is a fruit. A fruit is a part of a plant that contains excess food and seed. All fruits might not be sweet and edible but is still a fruit. And sometimes, they also help the plant to disperse their seed.
This is a stem. A stem acts like a pillar of a plant. It holds the plant upright and carries water, food and minerals to the parts of the plant from the roots.
The roots help to absorb water and minerals from the soil and also acts as an anchor.When the winds are too harsh the roots make sure that the plant stays firm in the soil and doesn't get carried away.
Did you know 90% of the food that humans eat come from 30 species of plants. But the earth has more than 80,000 species of edible plants.
So kids, why don't you rush to your garden and see the parts of the plant yourself?
Tune in next time for more fun facts.
This is me Zooming Out!
