Worksheet on How Plants make Food

Worksheet on how plants make food contains various types of questions on what makes the leaves green, veins of a leaf and photosynthesis in a leaf.

I. Match the column:

(i) Stomata                                         (a) food factory of the plant

(ii) Leaf                                              (b) through veins

(iii) Chlorophyll                                   (c) tiny holes in the underside of a leaf

(iv) Starch                                          (d) green substance that traps sunlight

(v) Water                                           (e) stored food in plants

II. Fill in the blanks:

(i) Photosynthesis is the process in which a plant makes _________ with the help of _________ from the soil and __________________ from the air.

(ii) The gas _________ is given out during this process, which we use for breathing.

III. Answer the following questions:

(i) Why are leaves green in color?

(ii) Why is sunlight so important for a plant to make its food?

(iii) Without chlorophyll food cannot be made. Why?

(iv) Where do plants store their extra food?

(v) How is the food prepared by plants used?

Check the answers of the worksheet on how plants make food:


I. (i) Stomata                                        (c) tiny holes in the underside of a leaf

(ii) Leaf                                                 (a) food factory of the plant

(iii) Chlorophyll                                      (d) green substance that traps sunlight

(iv) Starch                                            (e) stored food in plants

(v) Water                                             (b) through veins

II. (i) food, water, carbon dioxide

(ii) oxygen

III. (i) Leaves are green in color because they have chlorophyll.

(ii) Sunlight is important because they provide the energy needed for a plant to make its food.

(iii) Without chlorophyll food cannot be made because chlorophyll traps the sunlight.

(iv) Plants store their extra food as starch in roots, stems, leaves, fruits and seeds.

(v) The food prepared by plants is used for growth; making flowers, fruits and seeds; repairing damage.
