Plants are living things. Plants need water, air, nutrients and sunlight to grow. There are two main kinds of plants: Plants with flowers any plant with flowers and fruit trees. Plants without flowers pine trees, mosses and ferns. Parts of a Plant A plant has different parts that help it live and grow. Roots The roots help to keep the plant in the soil. The roots also take in water and other nutrients from the soil that the plant needs. Stem Stems carry water and other nutrients to the leaves. Stems help the plant stand up straight and tall so that it can reach the sunlight it needs. Leaves Green plants make their own food in their leaves. They use sunlight, air, water and nutrients from the soil to make their own food. Flower The flower makes seeds. The seeds are scattered by air or water to new places and grow into new plants. Flowers come in different colors, shapes, and sizes.

Winter It is winter in this part of the Earth because the Earth is tilting away from the Sun. The Sun The Sun is a star. It is made of hot, glowing gases. The Sun gives Earth light and heat. All living things can live on Earth because of the Sun. The Sun is much larger than the Earth. The Earth The Earth spins on its axis. This spinning is called a rotation. Earth makes a complete rotation each day. This rotation causes day and night here on Earth. The Four Seasons The Earth also moves around the Sun.
