Parts of a Plant Science Poster

This parts of a plant science poster cover what each part of the plant function is from the flower, stem, leaves, fruit, see, and roots.


Each Part of The Plant Serves A Function

Leaves
• Site of photosynthesis 
• Absorbs sunlight to produce energy
• The site of the majority of transpiration

Science Vocabulary Words:

Photosynthesis is the process of absorbing sunlight and turning it into energy.

Transpiration is the process by which moisture is carried through plants from roots to small pores on the underside of leaves, where it changes to vapor and is released to the atmosphere.

Transpiration is essentially evaporation of water from plant leaves.  You don’t see the leaves “sweating” but it is happening. The activity below shows it in action.

Transpiration of Plants Science Activity



Fruit

• Protects the seeds.
• Many fruits are edible by animals and humans.

 

Stems

• Channel for water, nutrients, and sugar transportation throughout the plant.
• Supports buds and leaves.

 

Flower

• The site of reproduction.
• Contain male and or female parts.
• Can be bright and fragrant to attract pollinators like bees and hummingbirds.

Seeds

• Contain an embryo which will become a new plant.

 

Roots

• Absorbs water and minerals from the soil.
• Provides an anchor for the plant in the ground.
• Supports stem structures.

Books On Amazon For Learning About The Plant Cycle

1.) Because of an Acorn
Because of an acorn, a tree grows, a bird nests, a seed becomes a flower. Enchanting die-cuts illustrate the vital connections between the layers of an ecosystem in this magical book. Wander down the forest path to learn how every tree, flower, plant, and animal connect to one another in spiraling circles of life. An acorn is just the beginning.
2.) How Does a Seed Grow?
Watch seeds grow right before your eyes! Readers can follow the fun clues and guess what delicious fruits will grow from each seed. With a lift of each foldout flap, kids can watch the seeds take root in the soil, sprout from the ground, and finally, make the fruits we love to eat! A tomato seed grows ripe tomatoes, an orange seed grows juicy oranges, a pea seed grows crunchy pea pods, a pepper seed grows shiny bell peppers, and blueberry seeds grow plump blueberries. 
3.) The Tiny Seed
Eric Carle’s classic story of the life cycle of a flower is told through the adventures of a tiny seed.

Readers can plant the entire piece of paper and watch as their very own tiny seeds grow into beautiful wildflowers.
4.) An Apple’s Life
This book uses simple, leveled text to introduce students to the life cycle of an apple, showing how it begins life, grows, and reproduces.
