  • 1. Leaves Stems and Roots ©2009 Norm Ivey
  • 2. Leaves Stems and Roots Study Guide <ul><li>Name the primary parts of roots, stems and leaves. </li></ul><ul><li>Describe the primary functions of leaves, stems and roots. </li></ul>
  • 3. Flowering Plant Characteristics <ul><li>All flowering plants have ____________ tissues used to transport food and water. </li></ul><ul><li>Food moves through the _________ from the leaves down to the roots and stems of the plant. </li></ul><ul><li>Water and nutrients move through the _______ from the roots up to the stems and leaves. </li></ul>vascular phloem xylem
  • 4. Survival Adaptations <ul><li>Leaves are responsible for _______________ (making food), ______________ (using oxygen to burn food), and _____________ (releasing excess water vapor). </li></ul><ul><li>Stems ____________ the plant, expose the leaves to ________, and transport food and__________. </li></ul><ul><li>Roots __________ the plant and absorb _______ from the soil. </li></ul>photosynthesis respiration transpiration support sunlight water anchor water
  • 5. A Leaf Stomata Chloroplasts Phloem Xylem Draw this picture in your notebook.
  • 6. Leaves <ul><li>______________ is the process by which plants release excess water to evaporation. </li></ul><ul><li>To regulate transpiration, the plant can open and close its __________. </li></ul><ul><li>[Answer this question] Compare the transpiration process to humans. What could you compare it to? </li></ul>Transpiration stomata
  • 7. <ul><li>[Answer this question] The stomata also release oxygen and take in carbon dioxide. What human process is this like? </li></ul><ul><li>______________ is the process by which plants burn food to release its energy. </li></ul>Leaves Respiration
  • 8. Photosynthesis <ul><li>_______________ in the leaf absorb light (energy) from the sun. </li></ul><ul><li>_________ absorb water from the soil. </li></ul><ul><li>___________ allow carbon dioxide to enter the leaf. </li></ul><ul><li>Through a chemical reaction, the water and carbon dioxide are converted into sugar, oxygen and excess water. </li></ul>Chloroplasts Roots Stomata
  • 9. Stems <ul><li>The three primary purposes of stems are to: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>___________ the plant </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Expose the leaves to ____________ </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Transport _________ and ____________. </li></ul></ul>water sunlight Support food
  • 10. Roots <ul><li>Roots _______ the plant to the ground and absorb water and nutrients from the soil. </li></ul><ul><li>Plants with a single thick root with tiny hair-like roots coming off of it have a _______ root system. A carrot is an example of this type of root. </li></ul><ul><li>Plant which have many roots branching in all directions have a _________ root system. Many trees have this type of root system. </li></ul>taproot fibrous anchor
  • 11. Root Systems http://www.bridgewater.edu/~lhill/Monocotdicot.htm Which of these pictures is a taproot system and which is a fibrous root system? Draw a picture of each of the types of root systems in your notebook.
  • 12. <ul><li>The tallest trees in the world, giant redwoods, grow up to 350 tall, but their roots are often only 10 feet deep. </li></ul><ul><li>Redwoods tangle their roots together and give each other strength. They keep one another from falling over because of their own mass. </li></ul><ul><li>What can we as people learn from the redwood trees? </li></ul>Root Facts You don’t have to copy this slide! Just read it and think!
