Over 8,000 websites created by students around the world who have participated in a ThinkQuest Competition.
Plants and Our Environment
Visitors to "Plants and Our Environment" will learn that plants are the basis of life on earth. Students made the web site to explain that (1) roots, stems and leaves help plants live and grow;(2) flowers form seeds that can produce new plants; (3) germination, growth, and formation of new seeds are stages in the life cycle of a plant. The students describe pollination and explained how plants with flowers form seeds. Students will describe how pollen can be scattered . Visitors will learn about photosynthesis, monocots and zygotes, how seeds travel and how a seed germinates to produce a new plant. Visitors will understand how plants are used by people for food, clothing and other useful products.
