Key Ideas

Plants are living things.

Just like humans, plants need certain things to stay alive.

Plants need water (from the rain and from people watering them).

Plants need food (nutrients) from the soil.

Leaves make their own food from the sun (photosynthesis).

Leaves make oxygen that people breathe.
