Investigation 6 study guide

Essential Questions >
  • How can we explain how water flows through a plant?
    • Where does water go in a plant?
    • What role do leaves play in plant water flow?
    • What is a plant's role in the water cycle?
    • What is the relationship between photosynthesis and respiration?
You will KNOW that….
  • Key terms associated with transpiration such as: Vascular Bundles, Xylem, Stomates, Guard Cells, Cuticle, Phloem, Water Cycle, Transpiration, Photosynthesis, Respiration
It’s important to understand that…

  1. A plant is a system that is comprised of tissues and cells that allow vital life functions to occur.
  2. Through experimentation, we can observe and explain evidence of water flow (transpiration) through a plant and is directly influenced by specialized plant parts and natural events.
  3. The basic mechanisms of photosynthesis and respiration.

You will be able to….
  1. Describe the flow of water from entering to leaving a plant.
  2. Explain how stomates regulate the flow of water in a plant.
  3. Relate transpiration as a component of the water cycle.
  4. Identify products and reactants in photosynthesis and respiration.
