Biology Lesson Plan
Parts of a Plant
College Students
Following this activity students will be able to:
 Identify parts of a plant
 Name the parts functions
 Describe how the different parts work together
Students will use a computer and headphones to listen
to a verbal lesson about different parts of a plant.
 Basic anatomical structures and physiological
processes play distinct roles in determining overall
organismal form and function. Molecules and cells
combine to form different tissues and organ systems,
which interact with each other to enhance the
efficiency and adaptability of the whole organism.
 Plants Identify
Plant tissues (roots, shoots and leaves) - form and
Plant regulation
Adaptations to environment
Reproduction and development - cloning & alternation
of generations
 Computer
 Headphones
 Paper
 Pencils
 Diagrams
1. Before doing this activity, students should know the
following information:
 The basic parts of a plant
 The functions a plant performs
 Why this functions are important
2. First have the students write down a list of functions a
plant performs and fill out a diagram of the plant
3. Then, have the students listen to the verbal lesson
while looking at the diagram.
4. Next, have the students fill out another diagram and
add their list of functions so they have a nice list.
axil - the angle between the upper side
of the stem and a leaf, branch, or
petiole - a leaf stalk; it attaches
the leaf to the plant.
root - a root is a plant structure
axillary bud - a bud that develops in
the axil.
flower - the reproductive unit
of angiosperms.
flower stalk - the structure that
supports the flower.
internode - the area of the stem
between any two adjacent nodes.
lateral shoot (branch) - an offshoot of
the stem of a plant.
leaf - an outgrowth of a plant that
grows from a node in the stem. Most
leaves are flat and contain chloroplasts;
their main function is to convert energy
from sunlight into chemical energy
(food) through photosynthesis.
node - the part of the stem of a plant
from which a leaf, branch, or aerial
root grows; each plant has many
nodes. Label the two lower nodes (the
first and second nodes) on the plant
that obtains food and water from
the soil, stores energy, and
provides support for the plant.
Most roots grow underground.
root cap - a structure at the ends
(tips) of the roots. It covers and
protects the apicalmeristem (the
actively growing region) of the
stem - (also called the axis) is the
main support of the plant.
tap root - the main root of some
plants; the tap root extends
straight down under the plant.
terminal bud - a bud located at
the apex (tip) of the stem.
Terminal buds have special
tissue, called apical meristem,
consisting of cells that can divide
Students will hand in their first and second diagram
they filled out
 Students will have a quiz the following week over the
