Science KS1 / KS2: Parts of a plant

This film explores the different parts of the plant, including the stem, trunk, leaves, flowers and root.

The function of each is explained through scientific enquiry and comedy, to give pupils a full overview of plants.

This is from the series: Ivy's plant shop

Teacher Notes

You could get pupils to draw a diagram of a plant and label the different parts.

Alternatively, you could print off pictures of different plants and get them to label the parts - e.g. roots, stem/trunk, leaves, flowers etc.

They could include a short description of the function each part plays.
