The stem of a plant connects the roots with the leaves. The stem supports the plant. Stems transport water and minerals from the roots to the flowers and the leaves. Stems can be woody or soft

Leaves grow from the stems and branches of the plant. Leaves use sunlight, air, water and minerals to make food for the plant. Different types of plants have different types of leaves. Most leaves are flat to absorb as much sunlight as possible. 

Roots are the part of the plant that is under the ground. They absorb water and minerals from the soil, and they hold the plant in the ground.
