This week at Lexington we learned about the parts of a plant. We talked about the role of each part of the plant in helping it grow! We learned that….
Roots Absorb water and nutrients from the soil for the plants, give the plant a foundation
Stem Transports nutrients up to the rest of the plant, gives the plant structure
Leaves Wide surface area to get sunlight to perform photosynthesis
Flowers Attracts bees, birds, and pollinators to distribute new seeds OR Fruits Protects new seeds!
We also planted some new Swiss chard seedlings from the Enrich LA seedling bank. Happy gardening!
