SEEDS: Activities Seed tasting LAB: mango, pomegranite, coconut, avocado, kiwi Seed Hunt LAB: Seed Dissection LAB: Seed Planting: Seed Experiments: 4. Seeds: seeds are made by the plant so that the plant can reproduce itself (make more.) Have lots of stored energy in them for the young plant to start life. Thats why animals eat them. Germination: the process of a seed sprouting into a young plant. To germinate, some need digestion, some need cold, some need warmth, some need fire, all need water. 5. Roots grow down geotropism (following gravity) Stem grows up phototropism (following light) They travel by wind, sticking to animal fur, in water, and by being eaten by animals/people We eat some seeds There are two types of angiosperm seeds: Monocots, Dicots VIDEO: HSW seed dispersal 6. COTYLEDONS: 1.Monocots have one cotyledon, (corn, rice, wheat, grasses) 2.Dicots have 2 cotyledons (bean plant, roses, cacti) 7. Seed Parts 1.Seed coat 2.Cotyledons (food) 3.Small plant embryo 8. Label the type of seed &amp; its 3 parts. 1.Seed coat 2.Cotyledons (food) 3.Small plant embryo Gymnosperm seed Dicot seed Monocot seed 9. SEED GERMINATION STEPS: 1.Water soaks into the seed coat 2.Seed coat splits 3.Root grows down 4.Small embryo grows up, taking cotyledons with them 5.Cotyledons turn GREEN with sunlight (photosynthesis) VIDEO: Germination of a Seed 1.5 min 10. Germination of a Seed 11. Plant Reproduction PPT. by, Robin D. Seamon 12. How does a plant reproduce itself? 1.Asexual Reproduction: (produces exact copies of itself, off of itself) 2.Sexual Reproduction: (sperm &amp; egg combine) Flower makes a seed that germinates SporesCuttings GraftingBulbs/ Tubers 13. FLOWERS 14. FLOWER: Activity Flower dissection Petal Dying Flower Hunt 15. 16. Flowers make the seed for the plant The bright color &amp; good smell attract insects Insects drink the sweet nectar for food While doing so, they rub the pollen &amp; unknowingly take it to another flower! (pollination) After pollination, the plant loses its flower &amp; starts working on the seed Angiosperms create a tasty fruit to surround the seed to trick an animal into eating it. The animal will pass the seed later with a little fertilizer ADVANCE 17. BACK on-mothballing.html http://gardeningsoul.blogspot.c om/2011/09/accidental- pollinators.html 18. BACK 19. 20. Pollination: process by which an insect carries pollen from the male part of the flower to the female part of the flower. This allows the flower to make a seed. WATCH ANIMATION LINK HSW: Video honeybees 4 min 21. Flower Parts Petals: brightly colored to attract insects Pistil: female part; Stigma: sticky top part of the pistil Ovary: inside the pistil; it has the egg (female part of the flower) Stamen: filament &amp; anther Anther: top of the stamen; has the pollen grains (male part of the flower) Sepal: green covering of the bud DIAGRAM LINK 22. Pollen from the anther (male part) is taken to the stigma of the pistil (female part.) Pollen creates a pollen tube down the style into the ovary of the pistil where the eggs are located. When pollen meets the egg, fertilization has happened and seeds begin to form. In angiosperms, the ovaries swell, creating a juicy fruit on the outside of seeds. 23. 24.

ROOTS: hold the plant in the ground (anchor) Stop erosion Take in water &amp; minerals for the plant Parts of a root: Root cap: thin covering, protects root tip Root hairs: threadlike parts of cells on surface of root Phloem: path that food from leaves take down the plant to roots Xylem: path that water &amp; minerals take up the plant Cortex: stores food in roots &amp; stems 32. Taproot Grows straight down with a few side branches Fibrous Root Grows more shallow, hairy; many fine- branching roots foxtail dandelion 33. Tuber: modified plant structure enlarged to hold nutrients stem tuber, (onion) root tuber, (sweet potato) potato tuber (potato) 34. Bulbs: underground shoot that stores food; roots grow underneath (stem tuber) Buttress Roots grow from the trunk for added support Epiphyte: strangler Fig Special kinds of roots: Link 35. Mangrove roots grow negative geotropism (up!) and then back down. Prop Roots (adventitious roots) help hold the plant up in wet soils 36. See LINK 37. In the Garden: (Special roots &amp; stems) 38. Carrots and Beetroot Carrots and beetroot are thickened tap roots which have very few lateral roots. Both are biennials i.e. they only grow for two years. In the first year they store food manufactured by their leaves in their tap root, and in the second year they use the stored food to produce flowers (called bolting). We harvest the carrots or beetroots before they bolt. 39. Ginger Ginger is a rhizome - a type of stem which grows horizontally just under the surface of the ground. Leaves grow from buds at the nodes on the stem. The stem is thick and fleshy and stores reserve food for the plant. 40. Potatoes This is likely to trick many people. Potatoes are not roots but underground storage stems which are formed when the growth point of an underground stem, a rhizome, almost stops lengthening and increases greatly in thickness. This forms an underground storage organ which stores large quantities of starch. 41. Sweet Potatoes Sweet potatoes are the greatly thickened roots of the fibrous root system of the sweet potato plant which contain reserves of starch. 42. Onions and Garlic Onions and garlic are bulbs. A bulb is an underground storage organ which consists of a very short stem on which fleshy bases of the leaves store food for the plant. 43. STEM: PPt. by, Robin D. Seamon 44. STEM: Activity Stem Hunt Lab Stem Rubbing Flower Chains Celery Dying Tropism experiments 45. Woody stems &amp; soft stems Carry water &amp; minerals up and food down Hold the plant up (leaves &amp; flowers) A trees stem is called a trunk Some grow underground (potato) 46. TROPISMS: movement of a plant Positive tropism (moving toward the stimulus) Negative tropism (moving away from the stimulus) Geotropism: all above ground plant parts grow away from gravity (up) roots go down Phototropism- all stems bend towards the sunlight- thigmotropism: response to physical contact- Vines: special kind of climbing stem Some grow along the ground (runners) like strawberries ADVANCE HSW Video: creeper plants/vines (1 min) 47.

Vein Vein 57. KINDS OF LEAVES: Simple leaves: one leaf blade Compound leaves: several symmetrical leaves Turn colors in the Fall &amp; fall off- deciduous tree leaves will freeze in the winter, so as a precaution, trees take in all of the chlorophyl to store in the trunk &amp; roots until spring Leaves without green = color!
