Plants: Structure and Function

 Dear All of You,

Below are some links to web pages that focus on plants. In particular, these sites discuss the structures and functions of plants. Structures are the parts of the plant. Functions are what they do, or their job. Go to the sites. Read. Study the diagrams (pictures). In your rough draft writing journals make a list of the main parts of a plant and describe their function/job.
