How Do Plants Produce Food?
What are the basic parts of the plants?Roots, stems, leaves
What are the two main jobs of ROOTS?Anchor the plants Take in water and nutrients
Explain the two different types of roots.Desert Plants: Have roots that spread out. Dandelions: Have one main root to reach deep underground.
What is the job of the stem?Support a plant and enable its leaves to reach the sunlight.
Explain the two different types of stems.Smaller plants: flexible, green stems (Live for 1 year) Larger plants: stiff, wooden stems (Live for many years)
What is the one main job of the LEAVES?To make the food for the plant
What is the outer layer of the leaves called?epidermis
What is the job of the epidermis?Keeps leaves from drying out
What does the upper epidermis do?Helps keep water in.
What is the lower epidermis called and what does it do?Called stomata Open during day to take in carbon dioxide and make food Closed at night to keep the plant from drying out
What is the loss of water through leaves called?transpiration
What connects to the tubes in the stems, are found in the center of most leaves, and they help food and water move within the leaf? veins
What is the process in which plants use water from the soil, carbon dioxide from the air, and energy from the sunlight to make food? photosynthesis
What is the job of chloroplasts?Only cells with chloroplasts can make food
What green pigment, or coloring matter, is located in the chloroplasts?chlorophyll
What enables a plant to absorb light energy so that it can produce food?chlorophyll
What percent of oxygen you breathe is produced during photosynthesis by plants and plantlike protists? 90%
Explain the steps of photosynthesis.Sunlight provides energy for plants to make food.
Plants take in carbon dioxide.
Leaves release oxygen through stomata.
Chlorophyll absorbs energy from sunlight.
Food is stored in leaves, stems, seeds, and roots.
Roots take in water
Parts of a Plant Flower: Where pollination and reproduction takes place. Leaf: Where photosynthesis (food making) takes place. Stem: Holds.
The start of a food chain. Energy from the sun comes to earth as light.
Plants and Photosynthesis
Photosynthesis Leaves are green because they contain small bodies in the cells called chloroplasts. The chloroplasts contain a green pigment called chlorophyll.
Photosynthesis By Ms. Megan Black Photosynthesis Photosynthesis is the process of making food by plants The essential ingredients in making this.
Plants People and animals need oxygen to live. Green plants make the oxygen in the air we breathe. How do plants make oxygen? Plants take in carbon dioxide.
Leaf Structure and Function. Basic functions 1. Photosynthesis: process which plants use the energy from sunlight to produce sugar (for themselves) 2.
Leaves Leaves are like small factories that produce food for the plant. Different parts of the leaf have different jobs. The veins in a leaf are bundles.
Photosynthesis (leaf structure)
Chapter 5 Energy and Ecosystems
Plants!. Chloroplast: organelle Chlorophyll: green pigment Pigment: substance that reflects some light and absorbs the rest.
Plant Notes 2/24/12. Plant Needs All plants need the following items: All plants need the following items: Carbon Dioxide Carbon Dioxide Water Water Sunlight.
Parts of a Plant (Plant Vocabulary)
Photosynthesis. Photosynthesis in Overview Process by which plants store the energy of sunlight into sugars. Requires sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide.
Parts Of Plant – Photosynthesis
Structures and functions of the leaf
Photosynthesis. In this activity you will: Learn about the process of photosynthesis Write a paragraph describing how plants use photosynthesis to live.
