This botany lesson demonstrates the basic structure of a leaf, its parts, and functions. It provides a practical life experience by inviting the child for a nature walk and introducing them to the different shapes and colors of leaves.
The video lesson helps the child learn about a leaf’s general structure and the process of photosynthesis.
What is Photosynthesis?
With the leaves’ help, plants combine sunlight, carbon dioxide, and water to make glucose and oxygen. The leaves then use a chemical called chlorophyll to trap energy from the sun and make food for the plant.
Invite the child for a walk in your garden and ask them to pick a leaf and name the different parts. Encourage them to connect with nature as they explore their surroundings.
