The male part of a flower which produces the pollen.
A gass green plants use to make food. Plants get this from the air.
The female organs of a flower. They have three parts: 1) an ovary, holding one or more egg cells. 2) style and 3) stigma which is at the tip of the style and receives the pollen.
One of the building blocks of which living things are made. Plants consist of many cells. Some may be specialized for particular jobs.
Chlorophyll is the green matter that is needed to make food for the plants
Chloroplasts are in the leaf cells and are full of chlorophyll (green matter).
The hard outer case of the seed which holds the embryo (baby part of the plant) and gives it a food supply.
In the root, it is the layer of cells between the center and the edge.
A flowering plant that has 2 cotyledons in the embryo. The bean seed is a dicot. It has two special structures called cotyledons which are part of the embryo.
The act or process of scattering or the state of being scattered widely. The process of seeds traveling from one place to another.
When a seed falls to the ground and may lie there "asleep"
The developing life of a new plant or animal, due to the combining of a male and female reproductive cells. The "baby" plant. The part of a seed that develops into a new plant.
Anything whose existence is threatened.
Monocot plants store food in a part of the seed called the endosperm.
The out layer of cells on a plant. It protects the inside parts. It is like our skin.
To breathe out
An oily liquid or greasy substance making up the main bulk of the tissue of animals, and widely distributed in the seeds of a plant.
To put manure or certain chemicals put in the soil as food for the plants.
A seed begins to grow. The growth of a seed of a first tiny shoot and root.
The egg or the sperm in the flower.
A seed travels by attaching itself to an animal or person.
To breathe in
An evergreen plant with waxy white berries growing on certain trees. Sprigs of mistletoe are used as Christmas decorations
A plant that has only one cotyledon. The corn seed has only one cotyledon.
A seed with only one cotyledon
The female part of the flower, which produces the eggs that are needed for making seeds
A gas that has no color or smell. Oxygen makes up one-fifth of the air. Living things need oxygen to live, and fires need it to burn. Oxygen is a chemical element. Green plants make this gas when they make food.
One of the parts of a flower that is arranged in a circle. They are the colored part of the flower.
The process by which green plants use carbon dioxide, water and sunlight to make their own food. Made up of two words: photo, which means light, and synthesis, which means putting together. A plant puts water and carbon dioxide together. It uses light as its helper. It also uses chlorophyll as a helper. When these things are put together they make sugar and oxygen.
The female seed-producing part of a flower.
The fine powder produced by the anther inside a flower that contains the male sperm cells.
A tube that grows from a pollen grain on the stigma of a flower down through the style into the ovary.
An animal that lives by eating other animals.
A substance that is found in all living cells of animals and plants. It is necessary for growth and life.
They are like hair. They come out of the root like a branch. They absorb the water and food for the plant.
The outer covering of a seed.
The outer green parts of the base of the the flower. They protect the flower bud before it opens. Inside the sepals are the colored petals.
The male organ inside the petals. The part of a flower that produces pollen.
A white food substance (sugar) that is made and stored in most plants.
The center of the root. It holds the veins that carry water and sugar.
The tip of the female part of the flower, which receives the male pollen grains
Tiny pores on the underside of the leaves (stomota-plural for stoma). Carbon dioxide and oxygen enter and leave the plant through these tiny pores.
Cells in the root that carry water sideways.
Tubes which take water to each and every cell of the plant. The veins help to strengthen and support the plant.
Veins that carry water and food to the plant.
