All living things need to reproduce.

This can happen in two ways:

1. Sexual Reproduction: This requires male and female parts and happens in both plants and animals. The new creature has some of the characteristics from both parents.

2. Asexual Reproduction: This happens only in plants and is when a new plant is grown from a small part of a single parent.

To find out more about sexual reproduction in plants look at the PowerPoint below.

For more advanced information about the two types of reproduction take a look at this video.
