Dressing Like Others

How often do teachers at your school dress alike?

Plants

Did you know plants make their own food through a process called photosynthesis?

Did you know deciduous trees lose their leaves in the fall and evergreen trees keep their leaves all year long?


We are learning about the parts of a plant and their function.  Roots absorb water and nutrients from the soil.   The water and nutrients travel up the stem to the leaves.  The leaves collect sunlight which it uses to make its own food.  Chlorophyll in the leaves traps light energy from the sun combines it with carbon dioxide and water to make a sugar called glucose.   Chlorophyll also gives the plant its green color.  Plants are so interesting.
