    1. 1. TIC TAC Plant Parts 4 th grade Jessica Runyan Identify the function of specific plant and animal parts. Welcome to TicTac Town
    2. 2. Vascular Plants <ul><li>Vascular Plants contain two networks of tubes in their stems, leaves, and roots. </li></ul><ul><li>One of these networks transports water, and the other transports food made in the leaves to the other plant parts. </li></ul>
    3. 3. Types of Vascular Plants ferns seed-bearing plants flowering plants
    4. 5. Parts of a Vascular Plant <ul><li>Roots </li></ul><ul><li>Stem </li></ul><ul><li>Leaves </li></ul><ul><li>Ovule </li></ul><ul><li>Stigma </li></ul><ul><li>Ovary </li></ul><ul><li>Petal </li></ul><ul><li>Anther </li></ul>
    5. 6. Roots <ul><li>Water and nutrients from the soil enter the plant through the roots. </li></ul><ul><li>Water tubes in the roots carry water to water tubes in the stems. </li></ul>
    6. 7. Stems <ul><li>Water tubes in the stem then carry water to water tubes in the leaves. </li></ul><ul><li>Some of the water then evaporates into the air through a process called transpiration. </li></ul>
    7. 8. Leaves <ul><li>Food tubes carry food made in the leaves to food tubes in the stem and roots. </li></ul><ul><li>Some food tubes run all the way from the leaves down to the roots. </li></ul>
    8. 9. Ovule <ul><li>This part contains the egg cell . </li></ul>
    9. 10. Stigma <ul><li>tip of pistil which catches the pollen grains </li></ul>
    10. 11. Ovary <ul><li>where ovules are made </li></ul>
    11. 12. Petal <ul><li>colorful leaf that helps attract insects </li></ul>
    12. 13. Anther <ul><li>This part of the stamen contains pollen. </li></ul>
    13. 14. What is pollen? <ul><ul><li>The fine powder like material consisting of pollen grains that is produced by the anthers of seed plants. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>http://www.pollen.com/Pollen.com.asp </li></ul>After you strip away the blossom of the male flower, the pollen is readily visible.
    14. 15. What does a plant need to survive? <ul><li>Soil </li></ul><ul><li>Light </li></ul><ul><li>Water </li></ul><ul><li>_________________________________ </li></ul><ul><li>Plants may have adaptations in order to obtain these basic needs, much like the Venus Fly Trap. </li></ul>
    15. 16. Stages in Reproduction <ul><li>An insect or the wind carries pollen grains from another flower to this one. </li></ul><ul><li>The pollen grains land on the stigma and a pollen tube grows down through the style to the ovary. </li></ul><ul><li>The nucleus of the pollen grain passes down the tube. It fertilizes the egg cell inside the ovule. </li></ul><ul><li>The fertilized egg cell develops into an embryo. The ovary becomes the fruit and the ovule becomes the seed. </li></ul>
