Plants and Photosynthesis

  1. 1. Plants <br />Christina Wills<br />EDU: 290 T-TR<br />11:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.<br />
  2. 2. Plants vs. Animals<br />
  3. 3. Plants are Important<br />Plants benefit animals in many ways <br />They give us<br /><ul><li>Medicine
  4. 4. Food
  5. 5. Fuel
  6. 6. Products
  7. 7. Oxygen</li></li></ul><li>If you scratch my back I’ll scratch yours<br />Plants and animals both give what the other one needs<br />All animals need oxygen to survive, oxygen is produced by plants<br />All plants need carbon dioxide to make food, and animals breath out CO2<br />
  8. 8. Making food<br />Plants have special components in their cells that are needed to make their own food, called Chloroplasts<br />A chloroplast is a green plastid inside a plant cell, it contains the pigment chlorophyll which is why plants are green.<br /> This pigment is needed for plants to complete photosynthesis. <br />Photosynthesis is a process in which a plant makes its own food.<br />
  9. 9. Gaining the right ingredients<br />Because plants can’t travel to get what they need they have their own way of doing things.<br />Colorful plants use their attractive looks to draw in insects to pollinate them<br />Plants also use the wind to disperse their seeds<br />Plant roots and leaves obtain the necessary ingredients for photosynthesis from the environment that surrounds the plant<br />
  10. 10. Plant Roots and Leaves<br />Roots soak up water from the soil<br />Leaves take in carbon dioxide from the air surrounding the plant<br />Leaves have small openings on the surface that allows carbon dioxide to come into the plant and lets oxygen leave.<br />The small openings in the leaves are called Stomata. They can open and close according to the plants needs.<br />
  11. 11. Photosynthesis <br />Process where plants take in H2O (water) and CO2 (carbon dioxide) and then light hits the chlorophyll and its starts to convert H2O and CO2 into Sugar and O2 (oxygen)<br />The sugar is what is needed by the plant<br />The O2 is not needed so it is released as a waste product into the atmosphere<br />
  12. 12. Glucose <br />The sugar that is produced through photosynthesis is called Glucose<br />This is used by the plant in other processes so that is has energy and can grow<br />
  13. 13. Cells<br />The reason plants can perform photosynthesis is because their cells are specially made for it.<br />Plants contain-<br />Chloroplasts<br />Chlorophyll<br />The green pigment, chlorophyll, is the reason most plants are green<br />Their color helps them absorb the strongest types of wavelengths to insure the best growing conditions<br />
  14. 14. The cell wall<br /><ul><li>Plants also have a cell wall, it helps maintain their shape and supports them.</li></ul>Some plant cells have a double cell wall that helps plants grow tall and sturdy. <br />
  15. 15. Plants come in all shapes and sizes<br />There are so many different environments that plants grow in.<br />Plants adapt to their surroundings in order to survive<br />Plants in the rainforest have larger, broader leaves that are made for catching sunlight<br />Plants in the dessert have spines instead of leaves, and their stems are large to contain more water<br />
  16. 16. Environmental affects<br />The reason plants have to adapt is for the environment their in<br />Many factors that affect plant growth are:<br />Light intensity<br />Temperature <br />The soils pH<br />
  17. 17. All over the world<br />Plants can’t always adapt and survive every where<br />Some are indigenous to the area <br />Some plants can be brought over from other countries and can thrive else where <br />The higher abundance of what a plant needs could lead to a highly plant populated area<br />The rainforest host thousands of different types of plants<br />
  18. 18. Over view<br />Plants are important to animal survival<br />Plants can adapt to different environments<br />Photosynthesis is how plants grow and survive<br />Chloroplasts make photosynthesis possible<br />Plant cells are very similar to animal cells except they contain cell wall and chloroplasts <br />Plants are needed to balance ecosystems<br />
