Main Parts of Plants © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved. 94-4387 Visit www.newpathlearning.com for Online Learning Resources. water sunshine Plants are living things. They need water, air, nutrients and sunlight to grow. A plant has many important parts, such as roots, stem, leaves and flowers. Each part of the plant has different functions that make it possible for the plant to live. Roots Roots help support the plant by anchoring it into the ground. Roots have tiny hairs that absorb nutrients from the soil, which a plant needs to grow. These root hairs also take in water from the soil, which a plant needs to live and grow. Stem A plant’s stem is used to support the plant. The stem allows the plant’s leaves to reach above the soil so that they may take in the sunshine. A plant’s stem carries the water and nutrients that are taken in by the plant’s roots to the rest of the plant. Leaves Leaves are the parts of a plant where the plant’s own food is made. They use sunlight, air, water and nutrients from the soil to make their own food through a process called photosynthesis. Flowers The main job of the flower of a plant is to make seeds. New plants grow from these seeds. Some plants form fruit to help protect their seeds.

Plants need their space too! Germination Germination is the process by which the plant embryo inside a seed grows and a seedling grows above the soil. A seedling is a young plant that is in its early stages of growth. Living Things have different life cycles… Living things have different life cycles. A life cycle is the way a living thing grows and changes.

A bean plant’s life cycle includes four stages: 1. Seed - contains the embryo, which will develop into the plant 2. Sprouting seed - germinates or grows root and stem 3.

Animals are grouped into two kinds animals with backbones and animals without backbones. Animals with backbones Animals with backbones include mammals, birds, fish, amphibians and reptiles.

Animal Reproduction Animals produce offspring in a variety of ways. For example, many animals have live births. The offspring develop inside the female parent which then gives birth to the live young. Other organisms, like chickens and frogs, lay eggs instead of having live births. Animal life cycles vary in how long they take. Inheritance of Traits Have you ever wondered why offspring often look like their parents? This is due to the inheritance of traits. Animals inherit traits such as the shape and color of their body parts. kittens develop inside their mother egg chick adult eggs adult tadpole froglet Animal Growth & Repr oduction © Copyright NewPath Learning.

Frog Life Cycle © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved. 94-4337 Visit www.newpathlearning.com for Online Learning Resources. Like all amphibians, frogs spend their lives near water because they must return to water to lay their eggs. The four stages of a frog’s life cycle include: 1. Frog eggs are laid in water. 2. Tadpoles hatch from the eggs. They breathe with gills and swim using a tail. 3. The froglet still has part of its tail and starts to breathe using its lungs. 4. By the time a froglet becomes an adult, its tail is reabsorbed. 1. eggs 2. tadpole 3. froglet 4. adult

Butterfly Life Cycle © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved. 94-4338 Visit www.newpathlearning.com for Online Learning Resources. Butterflies and moths go through complete metamorphosis and undergo four stages of development: 1. Egg - Female butterflies lay their eggs on a plant leaf. 2. Larva - Larva hatch from the eggs and start eating the plant to get energy. Butterfly and moth larva are called caterpillars. 3. Pupa - A larva attaches to the plant and spins a protective coating called a chrysalis. Inside, the butterfly continues to change and develops wings. 4. Adult - Adult butterflies mate, lay eggs and the cycle begins again! It takes about a month for a Monarch butterfly to change from an egg to an adult. 1 2 3 4 eggs larva pupa adult

Dragonfly Life Cycle © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved. 94-4339 Visit www.newpathlearning.com for Online Learning Resources. Most insects go through complete metamorphosis, but some, such as dragonflies, go through incomplete metamorphosis. This life cycle includes only three stages of development: egg, nymph, and adult. 1. Egg - Female dragonflies lay their eggs on a plant in the water. 2. Nymph - Dragonfly nymphs hatch from the eggs and live in the water while they eat and grow. This stage of their life may take several years. 3. Adult - When a nymph is fully developed, it crawls out of the water onto a plant stem. It sheds its skin (exuvia) and an adult dragonfly emerges. 1 2 3 eggs nymph adult sheds its skin

This is because the offspring receive traits from both parents resulting in a unique combination that is different from either parent. Variations in humans include height and eye color. A child’s parents may both have brown eyes, yet the child could have blue eyes. Variation Due to Environment Characteristics of plants and animals can be affected by their surroundings, climate or diet. For example, if you eat too much you will become heavier, and if you eat too little you will become lighter. A plant in the shade of a big tree will grow taller as it tries to reach more sunlight. Adaptation An adaptation is a trait or characteristic that helps a living thing survive in its environment . For example, it takes special adaptations to be able to live in a very cold environment. Polar bears have thick blubber and dense fur to help keep them warm. Plants that live in hot, dry climates have adapted special leaves to help them use less water. The thick stem of the cactus carries out photosynthesis. Inheritance of Traits © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved. 94-4340 Visit www.newpathlearning.com for Online Learning Resources.
