3 What is a plant’s life cycle?  Every plant has a life cycle. It is just the time period for a plant to go from a seed to a flower and then pollinate.plant seed flower pollinate  These terms will all be covered in the following slides but if you want to know about them before hand, you can click to go to the glossary!glossary Come! Learn and with me! GROW NextBack

4 As A Seed  Every plant starts off as a seed. Whether you plant it in the ground yourself or it drops onto the earth itself – it usually has a hard covering, called a “coat” to protect itself and is extremely tough.seedcoat NextBack

5 Germination  Germination means that seed is developing into a plant with the correct amount of sunlight and water. With these necessities, the seed will begin to make a new plant.Germination NextBack

6 Stems and Roots  As the plant grows, roots will form and push down into the earth to anchor the plant into the ground.roots  When the roots steady the plant a stem will grow up through the ground towards the light.stem  The plant will start forming leaves to take in more sunlight toleaves help make more food for the plant through photosynthesis.photosynthesis NextBack

7 Flowering  Many plants will produce flowers so that animals or insects will be attracted to it and will help with pollination.flowers pollination  Flowers come in many shapes, sizes, and colors. Some have fragrances so that attract with a smell. NextBack

8 Pollination  Pollination is when an animal, insect or even the wind carries the pollen that is produced by the flower to another flower so that seeds can be produced and the cycle can start all over again! Pollination pollen NextBack

10 Glossary  Flower – is the reproductive unit of a plant.  Germination – the beginning of growth of a plant from its seed.  Leaves – an outgrowth of a plant that grows from a bump in the stem. Most leaves are flat and their main function is to make food energy through photosynthesis. The first leaf to grow from a seed is called the cotyledon.  Photosynthesis – the process in which plants convert sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide into food (sugars and starches), oxygen and water.  Plant – a member of the kingdom Plantae, a living organism that undergoes photosynthesis.  Pollen – the male reproductive cell of flowering plants and cone-bearing plants.  Pollination - the transfer of pollen from one flower to another.  Root – a plant structure that obtains food and water from the soil, stores energy, and provides support for the plant. Most roots grow underground.  Seed – the reproductive unit of some plants.  Seed Coat – the outer, protective layer covering the seed.  Stem – the axis of a plant; it may be above or below the ground.

14 Biography Hello! My name is Lisa Zmudzinski and I am an indecisive Gemini from Edwardsburg, MI. I am 21 years old and am going into elementary education so that I will never have the same day over and over again. I hate sitting behind a desk and bananas. People say that I look more like my friend Stephanie than I do my sister and their probably right. In this picture I was a rad 80’s girl for a rockin’ cool party. Home
