Plants and their parts
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     You know, of course, that there are hundreds of thousands of different plants in the world. How many kinds of plants can you think of? There are trees, bushes, vegetables, flowers, grasses, and many more. Even though there is such a variety of plants, all of them have several things in common.
 
2     Plants have roots. Roots are very important parts of plants in many ways. Roots absorb water and nutrients that plants need to grow. They also can store that food. Some plants like radishes, carrots, and turnips store their food in their roots. Roots also help to support plants. Have you seen the huge roots of some trees?
 
3     Plants have stems. Some plants use their stems for storage. Desert cacti store water and food in their stems. Stems move water and food from the plant's roots to its leaves and flowers. They also support leaves and flowers. You may think all stems are easy to see, like that of a tree. But some stems stay underground. The potato you eat is an underground stem!
