Plants are living things that are all around us! They can be big like trees or small like flowers. They make their own food using something called photosynthesis. This means they use the sun, water, and air to turn a special kind of juice called chlorophyll into food.

Plants also have roots that help them stay in the ground and absorb water and nutrients. They also have stems and leaves that help them stand up and reach for the sun. Some plants have flowers that bloom and make seeds. These seeds can grow into new plants.

Plants are important for many things. They give us oxygen to breathe and food to eat. They also provide homes for animals and insects. Some plants even help keep the air clean by absorbing pollution. It’s fun to look for different types of plants in your neighborhood and see how they are different!
