  • 1. The Structure andLife Cycle of a Plant Grade: Kindergarten Subject: ScienceTeacher: Melissa Barrera
  • 2. Objective: As a class, students will gain knowledge on the structure and life cycle of aplant using a power point presentation. Students will understand that plants have a lifecycle that includes sprouting; developing roots, stems, leaves, and flowers; reproducing;and eventually dying.TEKS:(10) Organisms and environments. The student knows that organisms resemble theirparents and have structures and processes that help them survive within theirenvironments. The student is expected to: (B) identify parts of plants such as roots, stem, and leaves (D) observe changes that are part of a simple life cycle of a plant: seed, seedling, plant,flower, and fruit.
  • 3. How do plants grow?• Life cycle shows how a living thing grows, changes, and reproduces.
  • 4. What do plants need to grow? •Water •Soil •Sun-All provide nutrients the plant needs to grow
  • 5. Seed• Seed- a plant part that holds the embryo.•Seed Coat - Protects the inside ofthe seed.•Embryo - the beginning of thenew plant.•Stored Food - a plant uses storedfood until it grows leaves that canmake food.
  • 6. More Seeds……
  • 7. Germination• Germination - the process of growing a new plant from a seed
  • 8. Sprout-A sprout uses water and nutrientsfrom the soil along with sunlightand air to grow and change into a seedling.
  • 9. Seedling• A seedling is a small plant with a few leaves.
  • 10. Adult Plant/Flower• Produces spores or flowers• Flowers pollinate and turn into a fruit with seeds inside.
  • 11. Pollination• When pollen from the stamen moves to the pistil, the flower becomes pollinated. This is how seeds are created.• Wind• Insects (bees)• Birds
  • 12. Lets Watch….. The Plant Life Cyclehttp://www.ket.org/education/video/kevsc/kevsc_000003.htm
  • 13. Parts of a plant• Roots• Stem Flower• Leaf• Flower / Fruit Stem Leaves Root
  • 14. Roots• The root holds the plant in the ground• It absorbs water and nutrients.
  • 15. Stem• The stem supports the leaves and the flowers.• Transports water and nutrients to the plant (flower).
  • 16. Leaves• The leaf uses the energy from the sun to create food for the plant, through a process called photosynthesis.
  • 17. Flower• The flower helps the plant reproduce.• The flower creates and carries the seed.
