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
  • Pencils
  • 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.
