Plants Growing


Plants are alive, just like people and animals. How do we know this? Living things all do certain things:
·                     They grow and die.
·                     They need energy, nutrients, air, and water.
·                     They produce young.
·                     They are made up of cells.
·                     They react to what's around them.





Starting to Grow


Where Do Plants Come From?

Plants come from seeds. Each seed contains a tiny plant waiting for the right conditions to germinate, or start to grow.




What Do Seeds Need to Start to Grow?

Seeds wait to germinate until three needs are met: water, correct temperature (warmth), and a good location (such as in soil). 




During its early stages of growth, the seedling relies upon the food supplies stored with it in the seed until it is large enough for its own leaves to begin making food through photosynthesis





The seedling's roots push down into the soil to anchor the new plant and to absorb water and minerals from the soil. And its stem with new leaves pushes up toward the light.





The germination stage ends when a shoot emerges from the soil. But the plant is not done growing. It's just started. Plants need water, warmth, nutrients from the soil, and light to continue to grow.

What Will Stick to a Magnet?

Metal objects will stick to magnets.


Remember, magnets are metal.



Keys, nails, and paperclips will be ATTRACTED to magnets because they are metal.

Rubberbands, crayons, and feathers will not be ATTRACTED to magnets because they are not metal.
