LO: To explore the part that flowers play in the life cycle of flowering
plants, including pollination, seed formation and seed dispersal
All flowering plants go through the following life cycle:
1. Germination is the process by which a plant begins to grow from a seed. Roots form under the soil. The stem, leaves and flower emerge above the soil.
2. Pollination is the process where pollen produced by a flower is carried by insects or blown by the wind to another flower.
3. Fertilisation is when the pollen reaches another flower, it travels to the ovary where it fertilises the egg cells to make seeds.
4. Seed dispersal is when these seeds are scattered by animals or the wind. Some of the
seeds will grow into new plants.
