What is the function (job) of the STEM?
- to provide support for the plant

-to move water and nutrients from the roots to the rest of the plant
What is the function of FLOWERS?
Where plants make seeds.
part of plant where reproduction takes place.
What is the function of LEAVES?
Absorb sunlight and carbon dioxide so the plant can make its own food.
Plants can be divided into what 2 groups?
- Plants that produce SEEDS

- Plants that produce SPORES
What is photosynthesis?
