Include a table that states the function of each part
here is a new link
Part of the plant
Function of this part of the plant
roots
keeps the plants upright and to collect water and helps the plant not to fall down
leaves
to collect the light energy and to complete photosynthesis
stem
to take water to the leaves through the veins so the leaves can do photosynthesis
flowers
for reproduction

This shows a closer look at what happens in side the flower...

Here is a basic image of a flower structure. A flower has Male and Female parts to it that help plants to reproduce. A flower moves slowly so it will have trouble to reproduce, so it has to reproduce somehow. The insects take care of that but that is a reason why flowers have male and female parts, so they can reproduce.

Here is a link to a good website that tells about each part of a flower and what it is used for.
Want to challenge yourself? Here is a link to a website that times your speed on answering the right parts of a flower.

The male parts of a flower are called Stamen.
The female parts of a flower are called Pistil/Carpel.

The Stigma receives the pollen grains.
The Anther makes pollen grains.

Here is the structure of a seed.
The website I found this image on is actually pretty good for learning, it shows how a seed grows into a plant and it tells what all these words are. On this image Cotyledon shows to the centre while really, it should be pointing to the leaf. But, in the website it tells you that Cotyledon is the leaf, so I have no idea why it points to the middle, maybe because it grows in the seed while Epicotyl grows out, it aims for the sunshine.

This image shows all the parts of the seed but the only problem is that it is more complicated to read and that's why I posted the first image first. Again... Cotyledon is pointed to the middle, again not sure why but I guess that if both images do that then that is the right place for some reason.

Lets move on to roots. We didn't study a lot about roots but the most important question is that why do plants need roots?
Imagine a person standing still and a very strong wind blows at him. What will happen? He will fall, but animals can move their body fast so as soon as the wind blows, the person will prevent himself from falling over. This is exactly why plants need roots. From M in Mrs C Gren we know that plants move their parts of the body slowly, so how do they keep standing if a strong wind blows? Roots is the answer. Roots go deep, deep into the ground and the stay there tightly so the tree won't fall over. Another very important function of the roots is they take in water from the ground to do photosynthesis. Roots have root hairs with a different surface area to determine the amount of water the plant needs. This is why the roots are very important to the plants and everything alive.

I couldn't find a basic plant cell but here is one. I didn't put up an Animal cell because the page title is "Parts of a plant".
The main parts you need to know are:
  • Cell wall
  • Cell membrane
  • Vacuole
  • Nucleus
  • Chloroplast
  • Cytoplasm
The others we weren't taught so I think we don't really need to know them at this point. I don't know why but I find it more easily to learn it in my order but if you have your own way or you don't mind how you learn them, then learn them your way or any way you like.
If you love reading which we all know you do, (sarcasm involved) then this is the website for you!
Here is a great websitethat tells about Photosynthesis and about plant cells.


Here is a song about plant cells, NOT animal cells.

Here is the structure of a leaf. This looks exactly like the diagram in your books but it is a little different too. A leaf is very thin, this is so the sunlight could get into every part of a leaf. Here is a websitethat gives some information about this and it gives some information about other things we have to study too.
A plant has veins, roots, stems and other parts of it's body. The water gets collected by the root hairs, then it goes through the roots and into the veins. From the veins it travels up to the leaves for photosynthesis to happen. Leaves have a green substance called Chlorophyll that allows the leaves to look green. Chlorophyll is also where Photosynthesis happens.
A leaf and a plant cell relate to each other. Photosynthesis happens in the Chloroplasts that are found in the Plant cells that are found in the Palisade cells that are found in the leaf. This also relates to trapping light. Chloroplasts contain Chlorophyll that traps a lot of light energy. This is the line of a leaf structure where Photosynthesis happens. Correct me if I'm wrong.The other parts of the body are-filament which hold up the anther, the petals which atrracts pollenators for example bees, the anther makes the pollen grains(correct me if i'm wrong, the stigma which recieves the pollen grains, the ovary which is where the seed is found and the pollen grains which fertilise the egg cell.
