We Need Air!

All living things need air to stay alive. Air is made of gases. The gas we breathe in is oxygen. When we breathe out, we release a gas called carbon dioxide into the air. Most animals do this.

Did you know that the roots and leaves of a plant can take in air? Plants do the opposite of what you do! They take in carbon dioxide. This gas is in the air. Plants release oxygen back into the air.
