1: Diagram of the Plant Life Cycle
2: Plants grow from seeds. There are three different parts of a seed. The embryo, food store and seed coat.
3: Seed, Soil and Roots | Seeds are placed in soil. Soil provides nutrients for the seed. | Roots grow from the seed. They grow beneath the soil. This helps for the plant to receive more nutrients to help it to grow much larger and stronger.
4: The stem is like a straw that we drink from. It sucks the water and the nutrients from the soil to keep the plant hydrated and healthy.
5: Flowers grow in different sizes, shapes and colors. The purpose of the flower is to provide food for insects and animals, as well as to reproduce more flowers. | A leaf absorbs the light from the sun and air which brings the plants energy. This process is called photosynthesis. | The Flower.
6: What Help Plants to Grow | Sunlight
7: Rain | Insects and animals
8: The Life Cycles of a Plant Plants must go through a cycle to grow. The cycle begins from a tiny to seed and ends with a plant. Some plants such as trees do not produce flowers while other plants do produce flowers. A plant must have sunlight, soil, air, and water to help it to go through its life cycle. Once this is complete, insects and animals carry seeds (pollen) from one flower to another or into the soil. This is called the reproduction process. The reproduction process allows for more plants or flowers to grow. After this process, the life cycle of a plant begins again.
