In this video, Rasheen Robins will identify different plant structures and describe their functions, using a lenten rose plant for demonstration. The main structures in a plant include roots, stem, leaves, and flowers. Roots are structures that take water up to the stem. The stem not only transports food and water, but also lifts the plant. Leaves serve the important function of preparing food with the help of sunlight and flowers help the plant reproduce.
This video satisfies the 4-LS1-1 requirement of fourth-grade science proficiency.
Students who demonstrate understanding can: 4-LS1-1 Construct an argument that plants and animals have internal and external structures that function to support survival, growth, behavior and reproduction.
