of a plant and causes it to move
from light causing the plant to bend
Plants respond to seasonal changes
shorter days cause plants to go
this stops the growing and requires less
Show me what this looks like. Make sure you show and label the following terms; light energy, chemical energy, photosynthesis, water, carbon dioxide, sugar, oxygen, leaves, stem, roots, and nutrients.
How do specialized cells relate to the different levels of organization?
What two cellular processes are involved in sexual reproduction?
Ooooppps, one more question,
What is an adaptation?
Table partner discussion;
What organisms other than plants use photosynthesis?
Talk to the person behind you about this question.
Where do plants store starch?
Name 2 protective adaptations and 2 adaptations for specific needs.
Discuss with the person 2 seats in front of you.
if you are not sure read page 54.
