Parts of a plant/plant life cycle (teach)

  1. 1. Parts of a Plant andThe Life Cycle of a Plant
  2. 2. Parts of a Plant
  3. 3. Parts of a Plant• Roots hold the plant in the soil so it doesn’t blow away. They also take in water.
  4. 4. Parts of a Plant• The stem holds up the plant and carries water from the roots to the leaves.
  5. 5. Parts of a Plant• The leaves use light from the Sun, carbon dioxide from the air and the water taken in by the roots to make food for the plant.
  6. 6. Parts of a Plant• The plant’s flowers make seeds. Flower 
  7. 7. • Dandelion flower and seeds.
  8. 8. Parts of a Seed• Seed Coat– protects seed • Embryo (baby plant) —beginning leaves, • Cotyledon—stored food stem and root Embryo —baby plant
  9. 9. Seeds• Seeds are formed in the center part of the flower or in the fruit. Fruits come from flowers.• Seeds come in many shapes and sizes.• Plants grow from seeds.
  10. 10. If a seed receives water and gets warm, thebaby plant (embryo) inside it starts to grow.The process of a baby plant beginningto grow is called germination. We saythe seed germinates or sprouts. The first part of the plant we see pushing its way out of the seed coat is the root.

  17. 17. How a Seed Grows into a New Plant• The life of a plant begins as a seed.• Once a seed is watered and warmed, it germinates.• The root pushes through the seed coat.• The roots of the seedling grow down into the soil and the leaves and stem push out of the ground.• The stem and its leaves grow toward the sunlight.• The leaves make the plant’s food.• The flowers form and bloom.• New seeds are formed inside the flower or within the fruit that comes after the flower dies• The seeds are scattered and wait to start growing.
  18. 18. Two useful websites next one is a exercise on the things that are necessary for a seedto germinate.
  19. 19. Remember…When the embryo (baby plant) insidethe seed begins to grow, we say theseed sprouts or germinates. The young plant that grows from a seed is the seedling.The seedling grows into an adultplant and flowers.The flowers produce seeds.
