Do you know about plants and flowers? Do you know what the stamen is?
We all know that flowers are the pretty, colourful, fragrant part of a plant. They look beautiful and smell amazing, but today we have learnt that flowers have different parts that have different functions.
The roots of a plant take up water and nutrients from the soil. They also anchor the plant to the ground and keep it steady.
The stem carries water and nutrients to different parts of the plant. It also provides support and keeps the plant standing upright.
It is the flower that produces the seeds from which new plants grow. For new plants to grow from a flower’s seeds, a process called pollination needs to take place.
