Published on 2018 August 13th

Help an alien to understand how plants are adapted to life on Earth. Choose different combinations of leaves, seeds and roots. Design a plant that is best adapted to surviving in a particular environment. Adapt the plant for survival in specific environments: mangroves, cool rainforest, mountain slopes and arid land. Find out why plant structures are suited to some environments (but not others).
Students identify plant structures and relate these to their functions.
Students explore variable climatic conditions and relate these to adaptations of flowering plants.
Students investigate common types of roots, seeds and leaf shapes.
Students observe differences between plants that suit those plants to particular environments
