Types of Plants : We can not think about the world without Plants. We see a variety of plants around us . Some are big and some are small.
Very big and tall plants are called trees. They have thick stem called trunk. Trees have many branches. Their roots reach deep inside the Earth. They live for many years.
Some plants are smaller than trees. Their stem and branches are hard. They are called shrubs. They live for few years.
Very small plants with soft stems are called herbs.
Some plants have weak stems. They need a support to stand straight. They are called climbers.
Some plants with weak stems creep along the ground. They are called creepers.
