Hello children, welcome back to class


At the end of the lesson, pupils should be able to:

  • Observe features of common plants
  • Identify features of common plants
  • Draw and label plants
  • Group plants to common features

A plant has three main parts:

  • The root
  • The stem
  • The leaves


The root is the part of the plant that grows inside the ground. It holds and supports the plant to the ground

The stem grows above the surface of the ground. The stem carries the leaves ad exposes them to sunlight.

The leaves are generally green in colour and grow out of the stem. The leaves produce food for the plant.
