Plant’s Survival Day 1 Objectives: ● Recap the lesson ● What’s inside the leaf a closer look. ● Lab activity Let’s recap! Why do the plants make photosynthesis process? Energy is the ability to to perform work or change. Let’s revise page 5 What other factors affect plant growth other than what we investigated? Today’s second question: What are the different parts of the plant that helps it get what it needs? What’s inside the leaf? Let’s see how we dissect the leaf to observe it under the microscope. Observe the video and draw what you see under the microscope. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JSTqhuCUyl4 What is the function of stomata? ● Watch the video and tell your teacher about the function of the stomata. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oCp7Thlt6sE Page 10 More videos about stomata: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pwymX2LxnQs Homework ● Make an investigation: Look for any tree and cover a branch full of leaves with a transparent bag. Send your teacher a photo of what you did and tell your friends about your observations. ● Edmodo quiz Day 2 Objectives • Let’s recap! • Identify different parts of the stem (xylem and phloem) and the role of each one. • Explain the process of transpiration. Let’s recap! (time to climb ● Plants are (producers, consumers) ● Plants are called producers because they produce oxygen. (true or false) ● What is photosynthesis ● What do plants produce in the photosynthesis process. ● What is the function of the stomata? Let’s watch this video. ● Plants structures. How do the leaves get water? How do the other parts of the plant get the sugar made by the photosynthesis process? ● Water and sugar move in the stem in tubes. Which one will be easier when water moves up to the leaves or when the sugar moves to the other parts of the plant? The water moving up is harder as it is against gravity. Do you remember the experiment you made? What did you find out? Where did water come from? Transpiration ● It’s the evaporation of water from plant’s leaves. Why is transpiration important? ● As water evaporates from the leaves, more water is carried from the bottom of the plant to the top. Homework: ● Read the book pages 10 and 11 and answer the questions. ● https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-dicqNoODg Soil less gardens (page 15) – Do you think soil is important for plants’ growth? – Why and why not? – Have you heard about growing crops without soil?
