  3. 3. Roots<br />Long roots or little roots. <br />They hold plants in the ground.<br />Roots take water and minerals from the soil. <br />Plants need water and minerals to live and grow. <br />Minerals are in soil (natural, nonliving materials)<br />
  4. 4. Stems<br />Hold up the leaves, flowers, and fruit of a plant. <br />Most stems grow straight up from the ground. <br />Some stems grow along the ground. <br />Vines grow up and over things. <br />
  5. 5. Stems<br />Thick stems like trees or thin stems like flowers. <br />Roots bring water and minerals to the stem.<br />Carry the water and minerals to the rest of the plant. <br />
  6. 6. Leaves<br />Some plant leaves are wide and flat. <br />Others are long and thin. <br />Some look like needles. <br />Green plants use energy from the sun to make food in their leaves.<br />
  7. 7. Leaves<br />The energy of the sun uses carbon dioxide (gas) and water from the roots to make a kind of sugar. <br />The sugar helps the plant live and grow.<br />Many plants store the sugars in their roots, stems, and leaves to use later. <br />
  8. 8. How Flowers Form Seeds<br />Seeds grow inside flowers. <br />A petal (pet l) is an outside part of a flower.<br />Seeds grow at the center of the flower. <br />Pollen (pol en) is a yellow powder. It is made inside the flower. <br />Then seeds can form. <br />liberalmind1012, “Magnolia” May 11, 2006, via Flickr.creative commons Attribution<br />
  9. 9. How Flowers Form Seeds<br />As the seeds grow, the fruit grows around it.<br />What are the fruits we eat? <br />The fruit protects the seeds inside. <br />As the fruit grows, the flowers dry up and fall off. <br />The seeds that form in a fruit can be planted. <br />Some of them will grow to make new plants. <br />
  10. 10. Scattering Pollen<br />Insects and birds carry pollen from flower to flower. <br />Wind can blow pollen off one flower and onto another. The second flower is pollinated. <br />
  11. 11. Quiz<br />1. Plant roots get water and minerals from the _____.<br /> <br />
  12. 12. 2. The energy from the sun makes a kind of ______ from water and carbon dioxide.<br />
  13. 13. 3. To make seeds, which part of the flower does the pollen have to be in?<br />
  14. 14. 4. Name two things that can move pollen.<br />
  15. 15. 5. Have you ever seen an animal bury something? What kind of animal was it?<br />
