holds the plant in place stores extra food takes in nutrients
down toward gravity
up toward sunlight
holds the leaves up to gather sunlight moves nutrients from the roots to the stem
where photosynthesis takes place
where a tiny plant is developed from
the place where seed reproduction takes place
the protective covering for seeds
Pollen is produced in the stamen. Pollen is then transferred by the insect (or wind) to the pistil. The pollen travels down the stamen to the ovary where it is fertilized and a fruit usually begins to grow that contains seeds.
Some plants like ferns and mosses reproduce with these. In ferns these are tiny circles that form on the underside of the plant.
covers and protects the body
controls the functions of organs
made of muscle and pump blood through the body
takes in oxygen and gets rid of carbon dioxide
breaks down food into liquid nutrients for the body to use it
makes digestive juices called bile that helps break down food and cleans the blood
allows nutrients from food to pass into blood vessels
removes water from food and undigested material, removes waste
makes digestive juices for the small intestines
helps your body to move and gives your body structure
gives the body support and protects organs
collects waste in the form of urine
organs that take in messages and sends them to the brain (5 senses - eyes, ears, nose, mouth, fingers)
vertebrates and invertebrates
animals with a backbone birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish
animals without a backbone insects, worms, crabs Some animals like turtle have a backbone and a shell.
live on land and water have hair or fur feed young with milk breathe with lungs give birth to live young
(green plants both on land and water) are important to our food chain Without their ability to make their own food, all other animals would eventually die.
Food chains/food webs
Show the transfer of energy. The arrows point in the direction energy flow. Most of the energy is used by the organism. Only 10% is passed on to the next level.
Food chain/food web elimination
Some species will overpopulate and other will die
Something that allows an living thing to survive Waxy leaf to reduce evaporation in a warm climate, hibernation, growing extra fur, thumbs, staying under rocks in a desert during the day
Many lifecycles begin with a(n) ___________.
Traits you get from your parents Example: eye color and hair color
Traits you learned through your environment Example: riding a bike
