We have been learning about how plants obtain and use matter and energy to live and grow. We completed two experiments using Bromothymol Blue and Cabomba plants. We also used the microscopes to view the stoma of a Tradescantia plant. Students also started a Leaf reading. Students need to finish the reading and have annotations throughout the reading.
Students should know the following vocabulary words we have been using: Bromothymol Blue, Chemical change, Xylem, Phloem, stoma, stomata, Carbon Dioxide, chloroplasts, photosynthesis, guard cells.
Below is a quick study aid. This is only a few of the vocabulary words students will need to understand.
Below is a video we watched and discussed in class. It was difficult to see the details on the projector. Many students wanted to see it again.
