This is how plants make their own food. They absorb sunlight through the plant’s chlorophyll.
You might have heard of glucose when learning about the food you eat. Photosynthesis is why it is found in fruits and vegetables.
A flower has pollen on it, it also has an ova, which is an egg. When these join together, it creates a seed.
Seeds need to be dispersed so that plants can grow in separate areas. This can be done in different ways.
These get all the nutrients and water and take it up to the plant. They also make sure the plant stays upright!
Stems take the water and nutrients and move them to different parts of the plant, so it can remain healthy.
Leaves are brilliant for taking in the light from the sun, water and even carbon dioxide which is needed for photosynthesis.
There are lots of different plants all over the world. In fact, there are over 200,000 and the number is still growing.

This means they eat insects to help with their nutrient intake. You might have seen a Venus Flytrap. When a fly lands on it, they quickly close so the fly is trapped!
