3 An Introduction to Photosynthesis Parts of a PlantAn Introduction to Photosynthesis
4 Parts Of Plant – Photosynthesis Materials Needed by Plants for Photosynthesis:Water, Carbon Dioxide CO2 , and Sunlight.Materials Released by Plants in Photosynthesis:Oxygen and C6H12O6 (Glucose).
5 Functions of the RootsSupply plants with water and minerals absorbed from the soil.Support and anchor the plant.Roots store surplus food made during photosynthesis.
6 Parts of the RootsXylem – Brings water and minerals into the plant forphotosynthesis.Phloem – Carries glucose from the leaves to the root cells.
7 Function of the Stem Support body of the plant. Transport glucose and waterthroughout the plant.Some store materials.
8 Parts of the Stem Xylem – Carries water and minerals Phloem – Glucose and minerals
9 Drawing of Stem- Including Xylem and Phloem Xylem carries water and minerals to all parts of plant.Phloem carries food from leaves to other parts of plant.
10 Function of the LeavesThe leaf captures sunlight and makes glucose throughPhotosynthesis.
11 Parts of the LeafStomata – Opens and closes to allow carbon dioxide and oxygenin or out.Cuticle – Waxy outer layer to prevent lose of water.Mesophyll – Layer of leaf where photosynthesis takes place.CuticleStomataMesophyll
