Plants We Eat – By Hayden Gr. ½
Did you know we eat many different plants? We eat flowers like cauliflower and a variety of roots like carrots in fact we even eat fruit off of trees like apples.
Isn’t it amazing how we eat flowers like broccoli? We can even eat seeds off of a sunflower; also without flowers we would not have honey.
It is hard to believe that we eat some stems of plants. Some stems we eat are asparagus, rhubarb, celery and ginger.
Roots are an important part of a plant. It keeps plants from falling over and they get food for the whole plant. We eat some roots from some plants so they are important to us too. Carrots and turnips are example of roots we eat.
Sunflowers – By Freya Gr. ½
If you want to find a sunflower look for a flower that is as yellow as the sun with a middle that is as black as the night. They can grow to be very tall!! Parts of a sunflower are leaves, roots, stem, petals.
In order for a sunflower to grow well it needs: soil, air, water, sun and that is all of the things it needs!
Sunflowers grow in BIG fields. They are found in Canada, Mexico and America.
You can use sunflowers for many things! Did you know that sunflower seeds can be ground up to make cooking oil! You can eat sunflower seeds! Both people and animals eat them! People can just plant them to look at. They are beautiful!
