Look around, and you will see plants that are both big and small. Getting to know plants is essential for us. They support us in sustaining life on earth by giving us food and also by providing oxygen to breathe. They come in various shapes and sizes. Most of them have green leaves. Some of the plants have woody trunks, while some others have soft stems. Plants may be different, but they are very essential to us.
Plants are fixed living organisms which can be found all around us. They produce their own food, and so are called primary food providers. Being essentially green in colour, they utilise sunlight as the source of energy to produce their own food.
Getting To Know Plants Herbs Shrubs And Trees
Plants can be divided into three broad categories which include herbs, shrubs and trees.
Herbs, Shrubs and Trees
There are different parts of a plant. Some of them are found above the soil while some are below the soil. The parts of the plants are stem, leaf, flower, roots, seed and roots. They are mentioned below:-
The main part of the plant is the stem.
Another most significant part of the plant is the leaf. A leaf is the plant organ which is above the ground. It performs functions of photosynthesis and exchange of carbon dioxide for oxygen. Being flat in structure, it can absorb maximum sunlight.
A reproductive part of a plant is the flower.
Another part of the plant which is found under the soil is the root. The functions of the roots are:
Kinds of roots
There are broadly two kinds of roots which includes taproot as well as the fibrous root.
Examples of taproots are carrot and dandelions.
Example of fibrous roots is grass.
The enclosed and the dormant embryo of a plant is the root. We get seeds in the fruits which when planted, we get a new plant.
Plants are primary food providers. They produce their own food. They have a unique system like the photosynthesis, which they follow to produce their own food through sunlight. They provide greenery around us. They are the basic lifeline which provides us with food and oxygen. They have medicinal values and also purify the air. So getting to know plants calls for measures to grow plants and conserve them as well.
1. What are plants for Class 6?
Ans: Plants provide food, and we breathe as they release oxygen into the air. They are primary food producers, and their various parts are the stem, leaf root, seed and flower.
Based on these features, most plants can be classified into three categories: herbs, shrubs and trees.
2. What are the parts of plants?
Ans: The various parts of the plant are the stem, leaf root, seed and flower.
3. What are veins in plants Class 6?
Ans: The small lines which are present on the leaf are known as its vein. They help to transport water as well as minerals throughout the leaf. The thick vein, which is in the middle of the leaf, is known as the midrib.
4. What are the 3 things we already know about plants?
Ans: The three things that we know about plants are as follows:-
5. What are the 7 things plants need to grow?
Ans: Plants require sunlight, water, nutrients, air, the perfect temperature, time, and room to grow.
6. What are the 3 things we already know about plants or plant cells?
Ans: They are as follows:-
