First graders started their unit on plants by digging deeper into the structures that help plants survive! While many students knew some basic structures like roots and stem, students didn't really know their specific jobs! We did a few activities to have everyone on the same page!
Flowers: Produce seeds for the plant. Seeds grow into new plants.
Flower Stalk: Holds up and supports the flower.
Stem: Main support of a plant.
Leaves: Produces food for the plant.
Roots: Anchor the plant; soak up nutrients from the soil.
