    High School Lab
    The goal of this basic lab is break the misconception that photosynthesis is how plants grow. Students should also learn that plants grow by cell division. Students will be able to move past the misconception that plants use photosynthesis, not cell division, to grow.

    Middle School Lab
    In this plant anatomy lab, students learn about the structure of angiosperm plants and their diversity of plant forms. Students make claims about which parts of plants, fruits, and vegetables come from.

Parts of a Flower

Plant Concepts

  • Plant Tissue Cells - parenchyma cells, collenchyma cells, sclerenchyma cells.
  • Dermal Tissue - epidermis, trichomes.
  • Vascular Tissue - xylem, tracheids, vessel elements, phloem, sieve tube elements, pressure-flow model.
  • Ground Tissue - parenchyma, collenchyma, sclerenchyma.
  • Meristematic Tissue - plant growth by mitosis.
  • Leaves - blades, petiole, mesophyll, gaurd cells, compound leaf, leaflet.
  • Stems - node, internode, bud, vascular cambium, primary growth, secondar growth, tree rings, heartwood, sapwood, bark.
  • Roots - fibrous roots, taproot, root hairs, root cap, meristem, cortex, endodermis, vascular cylinder.
  • Cohesion-tension Theory - cohesion, adhesion, transpiration, capillary action, absorption.
  • Plant Classification - vascular tissues, seeds, flowers.
  • Sporophyte - spore producing plant, diploid.
  • Gametophyte - gamate producing plant, haploid.
  • Flowering Plants - Monocotyledonae, Dicotyledonae.
  • Monocots - flower parts in mliples of 3, single cotyledon, parallel viens, scattered vascular bundles, fibrous roots.
  • Dicots - flower parts in multiple of 4 and 5, paired cotyledons, branched veins, arranged vascular bundles, taproot.
  • Annuals - complete life cycle within one year.
  • Biennials - complete life cycle within two years.
  • Perennials - complete life cycle longer than two years.
  • Gymnosperm - Gnetophytes, Cycads, Ginkgoes, Conifers.
  • Pollination - wind, pollination drop.
  • Pollen Cones - male gametophytes, pollen grains.
  • Seed Cones - female gametophytes, ovules.
