Plants - What Makes Them Grow?
If this plant could speak it would ask for some water!

Plants - What Makes Them Grow?

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Science for children aged 5 and 6 in years 1 and 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with how light, water and warmth are needed in order for plants to grow.

Plants do not eat food. They have to make their own food in their leaves. They need light, water and warmth to make this food. The more food they make, the more they can grow. So, the more light, water and warmth they get the bigger they grow. Let's find out more about what plants need.
