Plants grow in stages. Follow the arrows to learn about their life cycle.
1. A seed is planted.
A seed needs soil to grow in. It needs water and sunlight, too.
2. The seed sprouts.
The shell of a seed breaks open. Roots and a stem come out. This is called germination.
3. The plant grows.
Roots grow into the soil. A stem pushes above ground. The plant is a seedling.
4. New seeds are made.
The plant is fully grown. The fruit has seeds inside. The cycle can start again.
