Structures of a Flowering Plant part : Summarize the basic functions of the structures of a flowering plant for defense, survival, and reproduction.
Discuss 3 things about flowers using qualitative or quantitative words
Essential Question What are some of the structures plants use for reproduction? ?
Structures for Reproduction Parts of the flowering plant that function in reproduction include: Flowers Flowers produce seeds. Many flowers contain both male and female parts needed to produce new flowers.
Flowers Flower petals are often colorful or have a scent to attract insects and other animals.
Parts of a flower Stamen – Male Part of Flower (think men and male). The male part of a flower that has an anther on a stalk (filament). The anther produces the pollen that contains the sperm cells.
Parts of a flower Pistil The female part of the flower that contains – The ovary, which contains the ovules where the egg cells are produced. – The stigma, which is the sticky top where pollen grains land. – The style, which is a stalk down which the pollen tube grows after pollination has taken place.
Ovary with ovule and seeds
Seeds The ovule contains the fertilized egg (embryo) which turns into a seed. A fruit is formed from the ovary which protects the seeds. Seeds have special structures that allow them to be dispersed by wind, water or animals.

Help Ms. Frizzle. What’s the name of the part she’s talking about?
Into what part of the flower did Arnold fall?
Where did the kids land?
Summary What are some of the structures plants use for reproduction? Answer: Flowers – Male parts produce pollen. – Female parts produce ovules. – Together they produce seeds that ensure survival of the species.
Interactive Online Activity science/virtual_labs/LS11/LS11.html We will start this lab together. You will complete the journal and data table and submit them for a daily grade. Finished? Fun game to play about flowers and pollinators. swf
