LEAVES


What leaves do? 1. Transport food and water (I am a storage, we are full of water and food) 2. Protect the plant (rain, rain, go away...) 3. Photosynthesis (Help the plants get energy from sunlight) 4. Support other functions. (Leaves absorb sunlight and the oxygen and pour out carbon dioxide to help other functions work continuously.) 5. Make the oxygen, so that you could breathe. 6. Could be your food! (Ever eaten a salad?)

Yes, the shapes are different!! and

3 efforts that influence the shape of leaves: 1. The amount of carbon required to produce it, 2. How long the leaf lives and how fast or slow it processes sunlight 3. Its rate of photosynthesis. Do you find something else from this picture?

7


What is Photosynthesis? Photosynthesis is a process used by plants and other organisms to convert light energy, normally from the sun, into chemical energy that can be later released to fuel the organisms' activities.

Flowers


Flower Learn About Flowers!

 

Flowers are vital for making seeds. Flowers have several parts. The pistil is the female part of the flower. It is typically located in the center of the flower and it has three parts: stigma, style, and ovary. The stigma is around part located on top of the style, which looks like a tube. The style goes down to the ovary. The ovary contains the egg cells called 10


Parts of flowers Flowers not only look pretty but, in fact, are important in making seeds. Flowers have some basic parts. The female part is the pistil. The pistil usually is located in the center of the flower and is made up of three parts: the stigma, style, and ovary. The stigma is the sticky knob at the top of the pistil. It is attached to the long, tubelike structure called the style. The style leads to the ovary that contains the female egg cells called ovules.

CHAPTER 7

SEEDS


SEEDS What are seeds? Seeds are the babies of plants. They grow and become new plants. What seeds need? The seeds need water and soil because these are food for seeds just like milk and eggs for us.

13


The seed coat 1. The seeds have a hard wrapper around the plan’s reproductive cell. To protect it so that the new baby plant could survive. 2. When the seeds are old enough, roots will burst out of the seed coat.

The seed also contains a short-term food supply called the endosperm, which is formed at fertilization, but is not part of the embryo. It is used by the embryo to help its growth. In the bean that is shown, the endosperm is no longer there. It has been used for the growth of the embryo, and most of its nutrients and energy is now in a different form within the tissues of the cotyledon.

14


How the seed dispersal to other places? Not like your dog, seeds can not go to other places themselves. So how seeds move to other places? There are five main modes of natural seed dispersal: 1. Gravity

2. Wind

3. Ballistic

4. Water

5. Animals.

Also, as you know, the gardeners do help seeds to disperse.
