1

protective outer coat of a seed

seed coat

2

seed coats job

to protect the interior of the seed

3

the part of the seed that acts as a food storage for the developing plant embryo

endosperm

4

endosperm's job

food storage

5

consists of percarsortissues for leaves, stems, and roots

embryo

6

embryo's job

to house the developing part of the seed

7

development of a seed to a plant

germination

8

three main things for seed germination

water, temperature, and oxygen

9

When a seed is exposed to the proper conditions, ______ and _______ are taken in through the seedcoat.

water and oxygen

10

The _____ cells start to enlarge once water and oxygen are taken in through the seedcoat

embryo's

11

Once the embyro's cells enlarge, the _____ breaks open and the ________ emerges first, followed by the _______

coat, radicale, plumule

12

contains the leaves and the stem

plumule

13

the prefix photo means

light

14

the prefix auto means

self

15

the suffix troph means

obtaining food in a certain way

16

organisims that carry out photosynthesis

17

difference between heterotroph and photoautotrophs

Heterotophs rely on other organisms to get food and photoautotrophs produce their own food

18

example of a heterotroph

animals

19

keeps leaves in light, provides support, transports liquids and sugars from roots

stem

20

absorbs and stores water and nutrients, anchors plants

roots

21

reproduction, petals

flower

22

converts energy from the sun to food, photosynthesis and gas exchange occurs here, conects stem to pedal

leaves

23

4 main things plants need to survive

light, air , water, nutrients

24

3 reasons why plants are important

- we create food from the energy and makes food for food chains
- produces oxygen
- provides resources

25

Plants are what type of cellular

multi-cellular

26

photosynthesis occurs where

chloroplasts

27

photosynthesis chemical equation

CO2+H2O-->C6H12O6+O2

28

3 ways plants spreed their seed

animals, wind, water
