The Body VS. PlantsBy: Summer Griffin

Parts Of Plants
  • stem (main organ for a plant)roots (the 2 main type of roots are taproots and fibrous)
  • two tissues:
    • xylem- tubes that carry materials from the roots to the leaves
    • phloem- tubes carry sugar away from the leaves
*** Remember: Xylem (Zye-lem ) in Phloem (Flow-em) out.
  • stomata

The parts of a plant and the parts of the body are very similar. Like our skeleton the stem of a plant holds up the plant. Also like our lungs a plants stomata helps it breathe.
