Plant Worksheets and Posters

Lots of plant worksheets for your science students, young and old. I have included worksheets covering topics such as parts of a plant, parts of a flower, life cycles of plants, plant cells, photosynthesis, uses of plants, and more.

You will also find some easy information on different aspects of botany.

I have also included a few related educational botany posters for your classroom or homeschool which are available for you to purchase from Amazon.

Functions of Plant Parts PosterCHECK PRICE

Leaves are the parts of the plant which enable it to make its own food (photosynthesis). They are also the site of water loss from a plant (transpiration). You can tell a lot about where a plant lives just by looking at its leaves. Some plants growing in hot places have thick leaves which store water. Some have thin waterproof leaves to enable them to survive long, cold winters. Some in tropical areas have leaves with a waxy surface to enable the water to easily run off.

Roots anchor the plants in the soil to stop them from blowing over in the wind. They also transport water and minerals in the soil to the leaves.

Stems The stem is part of the plant between the roots and the leaves through which the water and nutrients are transported. Woody stems (like tree trunks) have an outer layer of bark to protect the stem.

Flowers are how some plants reproduce to make new plants. When a flower is fertilized, it produces a fruit, containing one or more seeds, each of which can grow into another plant.

The male parts of the flower consists of stamens (made up of a filament and anther) which produce the pollen. The female parts of the flower consists of one or more carpels (made up of an ovary, style, and stigma) and are where the seeds are produced. The petals are often brightly colored and attract insects to the flowers so that they can be pollinated.

Chart Life Cycle Of A PlantCHECK PRICE

In many places in winter, the countryside looks bare as many of the smaller plants seem to have disappeared. Some of them are hiding underground and will appear again in spring. Others have died - after having produced seeds, some of which will germinate in the spring to make new plants.

A plant is made up from many microscopic plant cells which are enclosed by a tough outer wall made from cellulose fibers. They usually contain a large fluid-filled bubble, called a vacuole, which helps the cell keep its shape.

Photosynthesis Art Poster Print, 24x18CHECK PRICE

A plant makes its own food using sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide through a process called photosynthesis. Photosynthesis takes place in chloroplasts inside the leaves. Chloroplasts contain a green pigment, chlorophyll, which absorbs the sunlight to provide the energy to join carbon dioxide and water molecules together to make sugar glucose. The waste product, oxygen, is released into the air.

Plant Reproduction Worksheets

Pollination / Seed dispersal

Pollination occurs when the pollen from the stamens is transferred to the carpels. This can be done by animal pollinators (such as bees, butterflies, bats, or birds) or by wind. Once the seeds are produced, there may be a variety of methods of dispersing those seeds, such as being transferred by animals on their coats or in their gut, or by wind, or water.
