2 Insert Photo/Graphic parts

3 Insert Photo/Graphic Parts - a piece that makes up a whole thing

4 What do plant parts do? Insert Photo/Graphic (Minimize) Student Response: The help the.

5 Plants have many parts. Roots, stems, and leaves are parts that help plants live and grow. Insert Photo/Graphic (Minimize) What are three parts of a plant? What do plant parts do?

6 Insert Photo/Graphic roots

7 Insert Photo/Graphic roots - part of a plant that holds the plant in the ground

8 What do roots do? Insert Photo/Graphic (Minimize) Student Response: The help the plant to.

9 Each part of a plant performs a different function. Roots have tiny hairs that extend into the soil to take in water and nutrients. Insert Photo/Graphic (Minimize) Which plant part is under the ground? What does this plant part do?

10 Insert Photo/Graphic stems

11 Insert Photo/Graphic Stems - part of a plant that moves food

12 What do stems do? Insert Photo/Graphic (Minimize) Student Response: The help the plant to.

13 Each part of a plant performs a different function. Tubes in the stems carry water and nutrients from the roots to the plant s leaves. Insert Photo/Graphic (Minimize) What part of the plant is above ground? How do the roots and stems work together to help the plant?

14 Insert Photo/Graphic leaves

15 Insert Photo/Graphic Leaves - part of a plant that make food

16 What do the leaves do? Insert Photo/Graphic (Minimize) Student Response: The help the plant to.

17 Each part of a plant performs a different function. The green leaves of plants absorb light energy from the Sun. The plant uses this energy to make food. Insert Photo/Graphic (Minimize) Which plant part is above the ground? What do the plant parts do?

20 Insert Photo/Graphic move

21 Insert Photo/Graphic Move - a change in position or direction

22 Why do animals move? Insert Photo/Graphic (Minimize) Student Response: A moves because.

23 Most animals move to find food and water. Certain parts of animals bodies help animals move in their environment. Insert Photo/Graphic (Minimize) How do animals get food? Why would animals move to get food?

24 Insert Photo/Graphic arm

25 Insert Photo/Graphic Arm - a part of the body near the top

26 What do animal parts do? Insert Photo/Graphic (Minimize) Student Response: A helps an animal to.

27 Legs and arms help animals move and get food. The structure of an animal body part is related to its function. Insert Photo/Graphic (Minimize) What is the koala using each arm for? How are the body parts of koalas and people different?

28 Insert Photo/Graphic leg

29 Insert Photo/Graphic Leg - a part of the body near the bottom

30 What do animal parts do? Student Response: A helps an animal to..

31 Animals have different parts to perform different functions. Some physical structures that help animals move are legs, wings, flippers, fins, and tails. Insert Photo/Graphic (Minimize) Can you name two living things that have legs? How do the animals without legs move around?

32 Insert Photo/Graphic fin

33 Insert Photo/Graphic Fin - part of an animal that helps them to move or swim

34 What do animal parts do? Insert Photo/Graphic (Minimize) Student Response: A helps an animal to.

35 Legs and arms help animals move and get food. The fins of fish help them move through the water. Insert Photo/Graphic (Minimize) Why do dolphins have more than one fin? Why doesn t a dolphin need legs?

36 Insert Photo/Graphic wing

37 Insert Photo/Graphic wing - part of an animal that helps them to move or fly

38 What do animal parts do? Insert Photo/Graphic (Minimize) Student Response: A helps an animal to.

39 Animals bodies help them survive in their environments. Wings help animals such as bats, birds, and butterflies fly through the air. Insert Photo/Graphic (Minimize) What body part does a butterfly use to fly? Can all animals that have wings fly?

41 Insert Photo or Graphic for Unit or Lesson Theme Kindergarten Science Unit B: Life Science Chapter 4: Plant and Animal Parts Lesson 3: How do plants and animals change?

42 Insert Photo/Graphic grow

43 Insert Photo/Graphic Grow - the way plants and animals change as they use their needs

44 How do plants and animals change? Insert Photo/Graphic (Minimize) Student Response: They both have, but have.

45 Plants and animals change as they grow. All living things go through a process of growth and development. Insert Photo/Graphic (Minimize) How does a fish begin its life? How is a baby different from a child?

46 Insert Photo/Graphic seed

47 Insert Photo/Graphic Seed - a part of the structure of the plant

48 How do seeds change? Insert Photo/Graphic (Minimize) Student Response: At first it has, but then it has.

49 Trees start their lives as seeds. When a seed germinates, it becomes a small seedling. Insert Photo/Graphic (Minimize) How does a seed change as it grows?

50 Insert Photo/Graphic seedling

51 Insert Photo/Graphic Seedling a baby plant

52 How do seedlings change? Insert Photo/Graphic (Minimize) Student Response: At first it has, but then it has.

54 Insert Photo/Graphic egg

55 Insert Photo/Graphic Egg - the beginning stage of a living thing

56 How does an egg change? Insert Photo/Graphic (Minimize) Student Response: At first it has, but then it has.

57 Many insects, fish, and amphibians have a complex life cycle. Frogs begin as eggs. When an egg hatches, a tadpole swims out. Insert Photo/Graphic (Minimize) How does the fish begin its life? What happens to both the tree and the fish during their lives?

58 Insert Photo/Graphic young

59 Insert Photo/Graphic Young - the middle stage of a living thing

60 How do the young change as they grow? Insert Photo/Graphic (Minimize) Student Response: At first it has, but then it has.
