How is a root made?

• We lifted a plant.

Let us take a look at it.

• What do we see?

• A green part, in the air - the stem.

• A grey part, in the soil - the roots.

• Between the stem and the roots - the collar, or crown.

Let us look at the roots.

They are divided into smaller roots and rootless.

• The smallest roots are called rootless.

The rootless come at the end of the roots.
