Transcript of Putting all the parts together

Plants, like the human body, are made up of various parts. This includes: Roots Most roots live and grow beneath the soil
Roots absorb water and nutrients to help the plant grow Putting all the Parts Together Roots Stem Leaf Flower/Fruit The roots of a plant grow deep into the soil and hold the plant in place. They absorb water and minerals from the soil for the plant to use when making food. Resource:

This presentation is intended to help third grade students learn the parts of plants. It is designed to be used as a self-directed student learning center. It meets the following State of MI Grade Level Content Expectation (GLCE):
L.OL.03.41 Classify plants on the basis of observable physical characteristics (roots, leaves, stems, and flowers). Leaves have chlorophyll that traps the sun’s energy. Leaves also have stomata, or tiny holes, that take in carbon dioxide, a gas in the air. The energy combines the carbon dioxide and water to make food. Then the stems carry the food to the rest of the plant.

Discovery Education. (n.d.). Leaf [Flash Animation]. Available from http://www.discoveryeducation.com/ Leaf Photosynthesis, the process plants use to make food, takes place in the leaf
This food is then carried to the rest of the plant through the stem Resource:

The stem also acts as a transport system moving the water and nutrient from the roots to the rest of the plant Click play to watch this video about how we use plants. Resource:

It holds the leaves in such a way that they get as much sunlight as possible. The stem transports water and minerals from the roots to all parts of the plant. Resource:

Fruit is the part of the plant that contains seeds that are also part of the reproduction process Resource:
