This set includes the following cards:
Plants that have tubes in their roots, stems, and leavesVascular
Plants that do not have tubes, and pass water and nutrients from cell to cellNonvascular
Tubes in plants that carry food (sugar) that is made in the leaves to other parts of the plantPhloem
Tubes in plants that carry water and minerals upward from the roots to the leavesXylem
A molecule that absorbs red and blue light and reflects green light. (The green stuff in plants)chlorophyll
The process by which green plants make sugar from carbon dioxide and water in the presence of light.Photosynthesis
A waste gas produced during cellular respiration in animals. Plants use carbon dioxide during photosynthesis.Carbon dioxide
A waste gas produced by plants during photosynthesis which is used by all the plants and animals during cellular respiration.Oxygen
A nutrient that xylem transports to the leave in a vascular plantMineral
A process by which scientists identify and organize organisms such as plantsClassification

Part of the flower used for reproduction made of the stigma, style, and ovary.Pistil
Small opening in the top of the pistil. It is sticky to help the flower collect pollen.Stigma
