Wednesday Challenge: 1st July
Make a Living Diagram
- A recycled piece of card such as a panel from a cereal box
- Double-sided sticky tape
- An area with a variety of wild plants
Create your own labelled diagram of a plant including the following:
Roots – Anchor the plant into the ground and they absorb water and minerals from the soil.
Stem – Holds the plant upright and transports nutrients, minerals and water between the roots, leaves and flowers.
Leaf – Uses the sunlight’s energy to convert carbon dioxide and water into food for the plant (photosynthesis)
Flower – The reproductive organs of the plant are in the flower. The flowers are colourful and often fragrant to attract pollinators.
Bud – Protects the developing leaves and flowers.
