Why do some plants grow fruit?

Slide3

A plant starts with a seed…

A seed may be small like a grain of sand, or as large as a coconut! Seeds come in many different colors and textures.Seeds contain food for a new plant.

What are some seeds you eat?

Slide4

Seed Coat

The outside of a seed has a special covering called a seed coat.Like a coat protects us, a seed coat keeps the seed safe and moist.

Slide5

What does a Seed need to Grow?

Water A plant needs to drink.Sunshine A plant needs warmth and also needs sunlight to make its own food.Air A plant turns carbon dioxide into oxygen.

Soil A plant needs nutrients from soil.

Slide6

Seedlings

If a seed has everything it needs to grow, a seedling will form.A seedling is a seed with a stem. The seedling will grow bigger and bigger.

Slide7

Sprout

From the seedling small roots grown down into the soil.

Then, the stem grows up toward the surface.

Last, the stem pops up through the soil. When this happens it is called a sprout.

Can you name the sprout parts? (seed, stem, and roots)

Slide8

Leaves

When the leave start to form on the stem it is a baby plant.This plant can make its own food and no longer needs the food within the seed.Leaves turn sunshine + water + carbon dioxide into food for the plant.

Sunshine + Water + Carbon dioxide

= plant food

Flowers

A flower grows on a plant.

The center of the flower contains a dusty pollen.

When insects, wind, and water move pollen from one plant to another it is called pollination.
