6.   Embryo

7.   Spore

8.   Tropism

9.   Growth hormone

Title: Photosynthesis V / Notes    Photosynthesis – V

-         PS = chemical energy

-         PS= removes carbon dioxide

-         Plants breathe in Carbon dioxide and breathe out oxygen

-         Photo- light

-         Synthesis = putting together

-         Sunlight, carbon dioxide from air, water = H2O

-         Photosynthesis takes place in the leaves of plants

-         Stomata – small pores on leaves

-         Plant cells have tiny structures = Chloroplasts

-         Chlorophyll is found inside the chloroplasts

-         Photosynthesis is the process by which plants prepare their own food using carbon dioxide and water in the presence of sunlight

3 steps of Photosynthesis

  1. Thylakoid - sacs in chloroplast

  2. Stroma - liquid in chloroplast cells that creates glucose

  3. Formation of glucose & oxygen
