Activity 1: Parts of a plant

Try to remember all the different parts of a plant and then read the fact file and watch the videos to see if you missed any of them out. Read/listen about what each part of the plant does, e.g. the roots carry water to the stem and make notes.

Activity 2: Different flowers

Different plants have different flowers. This week go to your local park and see how many different flowers you can spot. What size are they, shape, colour? Why do you think there are many different types of flowers? Why do plants need flowers?

 

 

Activity 3: Continue your plant diary.

 

This week:

- Fill out the second page of the plant diary saying what you can see so far and draw a picture of what you see. Label your picture.
